Alright, I'm going to confess another reason that very little knitting has occurred around here lately.
That's right. Embroidery. Right before we left for vacation, I downloaded several fantastic tutorials from Wild Olive (to my hand little nook). I dog some old pillow cases out of the crafting closet, grabbed some floss and a marker from Michael's before we left, and spent most of the car ride making these little sampler/birthday wall hangings for the kids.
They're almost done - just a little binding and some hangers left to go. Best of all, the kids' love them! I'm hooked.
