I have to admit things have gotten a little stressful in the urchin abode. It seems like Halloween was over and WHAM, BAM, we are now freakishly busy. I’m sure it’s this way for everyone but we have the added stress of my brother’s upcoming wedding and Tristan‘s first birthday. Don’t get me wrong, these are both wonderful joyous events it’s just they come with a lot of activities and to-dos at an already busy time of year.
Anyway, enough of the complaining and onto something crafty. I present, the birthday invitations for our little cowpoke as well as progress on the birthday sweater. The back is complete and the front is in progress — six more cable pattern repeats until it’s done. The sleeves are just seed stitched so they should go pretty fast. I think if I get the front done this week I should be fine and maybe even have time to block it before the birthday candles get blown out. Then it will be time to jump headlong into Christmas projects and my list just seems to be getting longer and longer.
