Getting Back To Work

January and February are usually the most productive textile months for me, but for 2015 I made 4 projects during that time, 3 of which were for me.  I kept trying to feel guilty about my lack of production, but at the end of the day, I ended up enjoying the fact that I had taken it easy.  So with the beginning of March, I decided to hunker down and work on an order that I have due in April for 20 pairs of Blanket Mitts.  I'm over the halfway mark and have a nice pile of Mittens to show you and inspire me.

I want to make another 20 pairs when I'm finished these to get a head start on the market and tourist seasons.  After all, Spring starts in 11 days :)

During a recent trip to the Mill, I scored some beautiful striped blanket fabric in a handful of different colours that are destined for cushions....I'll show those to you soon.
