Bits of 2014

So truth time.  I just haven't felt like blogging lately.  I did a good amount of knitting for Christmas that I didn't even get pictures of.  I also made a shirt so bad that I never took pictures.  OH and I have another shirt sitting upstairs waiting to have the strings clipped.  All that said here are a few not so great pictures of completed projects.
This is actually the first thing I made from the tween pattern parcel.  It is from Everything your Mama Made and More.  I love the pattern.  Loved it so much I bought a few more of hers.  Sadly one of those is the one that needs some serous help to work for me.  None the less this one was well drafted and her directions are great.  They are simple patterns but simple seems to be good as the little girl gets bigger.
These are the pants from Gertie Sews Vintage Casual.  Its a lovely book and these are comfy.  The fit isn't quite right and I'm not thrilled with the butt zipper but I may give them another go and would love to make more from her book.  On a side note Emily now wants pink hair just like Gertie has in the book.
Emily and I made this together.  I'd been using a wreath my MIL gave us bc she didn't care for it for years and decided it was time for something I actually liked.  I followed the directions from this pin.  It took a bit of time but was super easy.
Here she is helping.

I have a bunch of instagrams too but at the moment I can't seem to get them liberated.  Hope you like this little bit of stuff.
