Proper FO Pics- Ruffles and Sproutlette

I’ve just returned home today from a wonderful vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains. How wonderful? Hubby is already planning our next visit. No joke. He’s right next to me on the couch on his phone scrolling through cabins trying to decide which one we want to rent next time.

Anywho… While we were on holiday, I snapped pictures of my girls wearing their knitted frocks. I had grand dreams of taking photos in the GORGEOUS gardens of the Biltmore Estate. But Hannah didn’t take a nap before our visit, and we ended up having to do the dreaded walk of shame back to the parking lot as she screamed and carried on in the stroller. Being 2 1/2 must be tough. She passed out in the car as we drove away from the estate. We stayed on the grounds and parked over by the farm/petting zoo/ wine shop/ ice creamery and let the gals snooze. After an acceptable amount of nappage time had elapsed, we woke them up and made the best of the rest of the day at Biltmore. So instead of beautiful gardens, the backdrop for these shots is the petting zoo. Ah, well. You roll with the punches when little kids are involved. On to the pictures!

Up first, Ruffles:

Photo Friday- We Painted a Birdhouse

Looking for a crafty post?  I just put one up!  Take a look.


My Hubby keeps strange hours, so when I woke up Tuesday morning, it wasn’t a surprise to see he’d gone out shopping after I had turned in the night before.  What in the world would he do without 24-hr stores?  On the dining room table there was an

Kyoto Cardigan

I’ve been working on this for a month (very limited knitting time, you know) and even though it’s not finished, I thought my dear readers deserved a post that was crafty in nature.  That word is in my blog title, after all, and I’ve only been posting nature and kiddo pictures as of late.


I give you Kyoto.  A top down, kimono-style baby/toddler cardigan pattern in dk weight yarn.
