On a less crafty note, Lily learned how to roll over this weekend. We are now in the stage of baby-rolls-over-gets-mad-about-it-so-you-roll-baby-back-over-she-rolls-right-back-over-and-gets-mad-again ALL DAY LONG. Time's a-flyin'.

I know it seems like I haven't been doing jack, but I really have. I have finished all the little artist cases (lucky me, Linda now charges for the pattern!), but I still have three little ones that I either need to purchase something for or dream up a gift I can make. Since all three of them live in Colorado I was thinking of making them a pair of mittens. I've tried twice to make them and both sets have been a complete failure. More research is required or I'll just have to give up and buy something. I've been visiting lots of crafty blogs lately. Write, Mama. Write put a post up the other day that I thought was really poignant. She also has a tutorial for the mittens I tried to make. I have committed to making four more stockings, one for each of my brother's family. Johanna has the cuffs right now, she's going to embroider the names on them. All that's left to do on them is quilt and sew them together, the piecing is all done. Those are what I am giving to Gabe (brother) and Kelly (SIL) for Christmas. I'm really happy with their gifts because Kelly really likes hand made items and that's what they are getting. Now that the little artist cases are finished I feel less stressed about Christmas.
