A Summer of Sewing and Crocheting

I have been doing a lot of sewing and crocheting so far this summer. Here's some of the things I made during the last week. I have more, but they're for a swap so I'll have to show them later.

Here's a newspaper boy style hat that I crocheted. Jace isn't happy about modeling it for me, but I don't have a girl that size so he's stuck.

I made another bag and was going to use it for a swap,

but I decided to keep this one for myself.

I made this bag for my sister Cathy

and this apron for my sister Cathy.
The receipt for the fabric was dated Nov. 8.
Thanks for being so patient Cathy!!

I have been having a blast sewing! I'm making Mallory a dress for her to wear on her birthday on Saturday and she wants another one in plaid, so I'll be working on those. I'm also almost done with another hat but in a cream color.
Busy, Busy, Busy!!
I love it!

You are a busy bee! I hope to get to sew some since school has started. As I have gotten older, I just can't do as much as I used to. I am very active and busy but just can't keep children and sew. You have done a great job.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
