Sewing & Knitting

I have finally been able to do some sewing. We keep the door closed to our upstairs and thats where my sewing room is. If it gets in the 40's it's not bad up there if I open the door in the morning. And not to bad on our heat bill. I have been making these really cute covers with pockets for 5 quart buckets. The teachers at my SIL school love them for organizing supplies for there clasrooms. I have made several for baby shower gifts and then put baby supplies in the pockets. I love to sew and always doing some type of projects.

As for knitting I have several projects going as usual. My dishcloth KAL's as always and several baby things for upcoming baby showers. With the cold and snowy weather, knitting is the perfect thing to keep me busy. I really liked doing these cute baby bibs in Bernat Chunky yarn. The little blue hat and mittens is in Caron's Simply Soft Baby.

These are some of the things I done in the cottontots yarn. I love knitting with this yarn that is so soft and great for baby cloths. I have yellow cloth to finish and then I need to get busy on my St Paddy's day projects. I only have 1 week left. Wow!! Then Easter is the week after. Well I will be very busy for the next few weeks!!

I love the buckets! Are they your own design or from a pattern?
