Sweet Feet

Happy Sunday evening to all.  This weekend has been a mish mash of activity here at the acre.  Between errands, laundry and other chores, the hubby has been painting.....and I've been having the time of my life crafting cute little things.  Every project will make for some sweet feet.

There's these little beaded socks.......0-3 months size.

 While the hubby was stocking up on his supplies, I got dropped a few doors down at a local Joann Fabrics, which took over an old Circuit City building and turned it into a beautiful store. Inspiration abounds I came home and put these little shoes together.  I love them and will definitely make more.  These were made with wool felt and rosebud calico (from the stash).  
The picture is deceiving, they are teeny tiny.

One of my friends at work, who is a new knitter, asked me about this pattern for slippers.  I brought it home and started a pair, to give it a test.  They are a good knit, using the brioche stitch for the sides.  I'll post a pic of them finished too.
I finished cleaning out my sewing room.....including sorting all my patterns.  Some went to charity, along with many odds and ends.  I also cleaned out our storage area/pantry in the basement, and that was bonus because it wasn't on my "list."

 Whenever I sit down to listen to TV, these little sweeties get my attention.  I'm using paper pieces that I ordered online, along with a template 3/8" bigger than the pieces used to cut the fabric.  The whole process is enjoyable.  I will be turning these "sixes" into a baby quilt.
Hope you had a beautiful weekend and God Bless your week ahead.
