Made with love. They actually were really easy, except for the mistake of getting carried away on the thumbs and making them really, really long. They are lined with brown fleece which I scored for about a dollar (for a ton of it) at Jo-Ann's the other day in their remnants bin. (The remnants are already on sale, but everything was an additional 70% off! Yahoo!) I pulled some cute, yet manish buttons off of something else I had lying around and the loops that hold them back are little green yarn braids. I figure if I spend enough time on the details, the big mistakes will be more forgiveable.
Another craft I've been working on too much lately are these little creatures:Admittedly modeled after Santa's Gnomes these little woodland creatures are completely addicting. I can't stop making them. Luckily, Anja adores them and they get along very well with the friendly gnomes.
So this is how I've been spending my time while the girls just play in the front room, which is the warmest room in the house these days, until we get our woodstove up and running. Brrrrr.... anyway, I keep hearing that we're going to get a lot more snow tonight or tomorrow. Yay! Maybe Ivy Tech will have a snow day and Martin won't have to go to work! Well, we can hope anyway.
