2 FO's in 2 days.

I'm on a sewing roll. When I realized that my Niece's 2nd Birthday was coming up I wanted to try my hands a actually sewing something she could wear. (I could have knit her something but there is not much that I could knit her that her momma couldn't.) I bought a pattern for Sadie and Cierra about a week ago. I had planned on making them tank tops for this summer. I changed my plans and made her this cute top.
But what kind of fun can a 2 year old have with a top? So I went to borders and bought "Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts." A super cute book by the same person who wrote "Last minute Knitted Gifts." It has a really cute pattern for a stuffed Elephant toy. His name is "peanut, the wee elephant" He came out kind of wonky but I don't think that Sadie will mind do you?
Well I still have to make Cierra's top but I'm in no hurry.
In other news, My family and I will be moving AGAIN. This time for good (or at least for 3yrs or so) We got a house on post now. Yay!!! My husband is happy that he wont have to wake up at 3am everyday and come home at around 8pm anymore. Puyallup isn't that far away from Frt. Lewis but it's a waste of time and gas going back and forth in the mornings to change after his morning work out with his soldiers. So we will be packing up again in about 2 weeks. We didn't think that we would get a house on post as soon as we did. They had told us at least 6-8 months wait.
Well gotta be going. Next post should have some actual knitting content. Happy knitting or sewing or crafting in general ;)
