Still Kicking

I just wanted to stop in a say I'm still alive. Is anyone out there? I've actually started writing more than one post and haven't had the chance to finish, so I'll keep it brief in order to get this online. 

Here's what I'm up to:

 Amelia is now a whopping 18 months old (yes, I knit the sweater). She spent her 1st birthday at Disneyland and turned 16 months at Disney World, not bad for such a young lady. She's in "school" 3 half days a week (yay) so I've been back at the sewing machine and working on my shop again.

I'm always making something. Here are a couple of my latest projects:

This is Amelia's Easter bunny. I thought it might be fun to make here a new critter every year....this will be #1 in a set. I got the pattern on Ravelry here.

I'm still a fan of monkeys (though I rarely make them anymore) so when Rebecca Danger came out with this monkey pattern I had to play along. Isn't he the cutest? I think Nick likes him more than Amelia does.

I'm still making tons of these:

and generally having a good time. Hope you've been well all these months and I really hope I can manage to blog a bit more than once a year from now on. Fingers crossed.
