Preparing for Nephew

The first batch of presents for my nephew has finally been finished. I hope my sister is adhering to the temporary reading ban I've imposed upon her. If you're reading this, honey, please get off the blog now! You know you're allowed back post-birth...


...has become quite the lovely pile...

Another two more pictures to showcase the other fabrics.

Riveting the studs with a hammer proved fun, especially because the noise made the husband ask what the heck I was doing...

Other than that, I cast on a cowl on my knitting needles yesterday evening. Let's see how that goes because a) I think I made a negligent mistake somewhere and b) I'm not sure I really like the pattern. Hmpf.

Anyway, I've also been brainstorming ideas for more embroidery on Red Riding.

Having learnt that the parents have a weakness for owls I might just stitch up one or two. Do you remember Jenelle's incredibly cute Vintage Owl Embroidered Cushion? I'd like to aim for something similar - only smaller and worked in my blue quilting thread only, obviously. What do you think?

Happy sewing and to a great week, friends!

Linking up! Come on and join the fun!

  1. Love the matching bib and burp cloth sets. Very cute! I knit a cowl for myself using the gaptastic pattern off Ravelry. I really liked how it turned out, very simple.

  2. Cute baby gifts, really adorable.

  3. Ach mach doch bitte gleich mal noch ein paar Lätze für mich mit ;)
