So it's been quite awhile since my last post... this is likely to happen again since I'm getting married in 50 days, and there's always a lot to be working on for that.
I have gotten some sewing in over the last month and a half but mostly miscellaneous crafts. My friend and I had a Twilight movie day (in preparation for the release of Eclipse) and we busted out our crocheting together for the first time in several months. It looks like our goal of a June finish date for our blankets was not so realistic. (to be fair though, our blankets are 2 to 3 times the size of a normal pattern... so maybe by December or next June? I hope we're done before that)
My Mom and I caught a few pattern sales recently, so I continue to stock up on them and have slowly been trying them out. One pattern now in my collection is the Simplicity 2921 which is for little stuffed animals: a horse/unicorn, elephant, and lamb. I thought the lamb was cute, so I tried it out first. It didn't turn out as cute as the pattern shows, because I think I missed a dart when sewing the face or something. The picture on the pattern looks like there should be more dimension there. I was also surprised at how small the lamb is, although there was not a scale to compare on the pattern picture, I just assumed it was a normal sized animal. It's just slightly bigger than a beanie baby.

This pattern was kind of fun and didn't take much fabric, so I may have to try it again. Maybe the next one will turn out more like it should?
