Something Old, Something New, Something Fun and Something Cute

Something Old

 This is a lion pillow that my Grandma had made for whenever her grand-kids would come and visit.  I have lots of memories laying on the floor in her living room watching TV or playing with my siblings and cousins!

Something New

That being said, I wanted to make something similar for my sister and nephew-to-be.  Jeremy and Annie like to visit the zoo and have taken many pictures of the giraffes.   I thought this would be appropriate for their household.  It is one of my very own first designs!

Eeeek!  Baby Drool!
I am a chick magnet!

 I have been having a blast making this onsies for the new baby! 
Future Nintendo Nerd!

Baby hats I have knit for baby!  MN TWINS colors baby!

My sweet little neighbor boy Peter-pie wanted me to make him a Man with the Yellow Hat sleeping Cap.  Complete with yellow pompom!

 Well off to work on some more fun things!  Talk to you all later!

Pictures from the Past

I thought that I would share some of my past projects that I have completed.  I am very excited to start blogging and documenting the fun things that I have made.

I love this little poncho!  I had forgotten that I had made it!

I found a pattern somewhere on clearance for .49 cents.  This was one of the patterns in it.  It was so easy and I love making these little baby buntings and pillows.

This is another version of the baby bunting and pillow, I also made a matching sweater with baby frog buttons to go with it!

Well that is a quick peek in to my past projects.  I off to go work on some current ones!

Have a great day everybody!

A brand new adventure!


Welcome to Stitches, Hooks and Sticks or SHS for short! During the next few months I will be sharing my new adventure into the design world of sewing, crochet and knitting! Many of my friends have said that I need to open an etsy shop and sell my creations! This blog is my exploration into this new world! I hope you will be willing to share you opinions of my work.

Well off to my machine to start working!
