unselfish devotion

my sister has been saying to me, every time we talk on the phone, "so, i have been checking your blog everyday, hoping to see your progress photos of the pj shorts, the skirt and the kimono top you said you were going to make for me, hmm... i haven't seen them still". she is so good at making me work you have no idea.

i spent this weekend making this pair of shorts for her (fits me, too... so i can always get it back!), i can't get enough of alexander henry's fabrics. so cheerful!

skirts and top are coming. as well as the iris shrug i am going to make for my friend (i'll show you some of her gorgeous handcrafted jewelry later). and... the harry potter scarf my husband all of a sudden remembers that he still hasn't received... oy.

Cute shorts, they look really comfy. Oh, I can't wait to see you start the shrug, I'm so happy to see you knit!

What a fantastic fabric! Those shorts are really cute, I love them!

love that fabric! I loooove my PJ shorts aka boxers.. hee hee. If only they were as cute as those!

FINALLY.... :-D you have no idea how many times I've checked your blog this weekend. I love it, it's so cute!! Thanks...

Cute shorts! Very happy fabric :0)

Sounds as though you will be busy for quite a while. Isnt it funny how all of a sudden people suddenly remember what you were supposed to make them, even though it was months ago that you promised you would. My sister is still waiting on her jumper which is a slow WIP. Cute shorts too.

So cute! And I looooove the dress. You're so talented.
