We've moved twice in 6 months, once across the country, once having to pack everything in 3 days because we didn't think we'd be getting the apartment that we did. Needless to say, shit got cray and not everything is accounted for just yet.
At first I was going to give myself an out and say that I would start this list over since it was a new year and I honestly haven't touched most of these in a looooong time. Alas, I don't think I deserve a break on these. Some may be retired for the time being, but I am not opposed to bringing things out of retirement.
In our new apartment, I've given my craft room to our newest roommate even though he doesn't pay any rent and has no interest in getting a job any time soon.

Things I Shockingly Made Progress On:
Hermoine Hearts Ron Hat
Turns out I really like cables. This project only recently got some love, like in the last week because its been freakin' freezing in WI and I wanted to cute hat to wear. It took a bit to remember what I was doing but now I am back on track. I might even be able to finish it in time to wear before spring!
|So soft and getting close to being done!|
Robutt Quilt (New!)
I started this quilt for Jett while we were living in Madison. Its from Dare to Be Square and its been a lot of fun to work on.
However, a rigorous work schedule and being very very tired and pregnant means I didn't get it done before he got here and now its a bit stalled. I haven't gotten a lot of pics yet and right now its in a bin in the Craft Closet so all you get is this.
I wanted to make Jett a little toy, something that I could work on while he slept on me or in the moments that I wasn't actively wrangling him. I found this pattern and just fell in love. I haven't taken any pics yet but its getting there. I somehow thought it was an awesome idea to make it out of Homepsun because it'd be soft and snuggly.
Amigurimi in Homespun is insanity. I'll be amazed if it holds up once it's done enough in such a tight stitch to give it to the baby. Haha.
Baby Strange (Complete!)
I went into labor 3 weeks early. Labored for about 17 hours and had me a sweet little baby boy. Jett Aaron was born 10/6/13 at 12:35am at 7lbs9oz and 21". I was very glad he didn't cook for 3 more weeks, he'd have been a damn hoss!
|Pretty much how I spent every single day of my maternity leave.|

Craftsy Bombshell Dress (Retired because it is not very postpartum body friendly. I started it when I was in much better shape and a lot has changed since then. I may try to remake it to fit now, but for as much work as it is and for how rapidly my body is changing I believe I will wait on this.)
