As I have mentioned before, my current crafting fixation is knitting. After a year of sporadic work, I recently finished a very sloppy but awesome scarf for Jiji. Now I want to make a blankie for Mojo.  I started one, with a simple basket weave pattern, but because I can only work on it a bit at a time I lose count and get lost in the pattern.  My solution? Squares! I have found several super-awesome patterns for "dishcloth" squares, so I can make them one at a time, and when I have enough, whipstitch them together.  I know myself well enough to know several small projects work better than one looooong one...I lose patience and interest.  As I was browsing through the free patterns on Ravelry at 2:30 this morning while trying to get Mo back to sleep, I found several interesting patterns. Great sigils like a Pentacle, Trefoil, Raven, Moon and Stars, as well as ones that are meaningful to our family like a lady bug, a honeybee, and a 4-leaf clover. So I am going to get started today on a Pentacle square, and just make up a bunch, then when it is assembled Mojo will have a Magickal blankie to snuggle at night. I will keep you posted on progress.

Diaper 3.0

Mojo is now 8 months, and her diapers are getting a little snug.  I have taken all I like and hate about the diaper design I made for this batch, threw it together with my growing sewing skills, and viola!  I have what I feel is an awesome, functional, and super-cute pocket diaper which should be adjustable enough to get her through to potty training...or at least close. 

There is a layer of flannel against the skin to wick moisture away, and the fleece is hidden inside and covered by the CUTE bee fabric!  They actually work well as a pocket diaper, not just a cover like my last batch turned into. Pretty proud, I must say!  I am so proud I am going to be selling them, along with hand made ring slings and nursing covers.  You can coordinate your whole baby stash LOL. 
Swing by the brand new and growing store at and see what I have been up to.
