Getting the hang of things here

I have been adjusting to life as a full time caretaker for my kids, and I was worried for a while that I'd never knit, sew or paint again, even though I have 'studio' space in the finished basement at our new place. Fortunately, I am getting the hang of life with a baby and toddler at home. I am always stunned when I manage to cut out some fabric or sew something. And I have knit a hat since being here (it's been a little over two months). Things are looking up!

Recent stuff:

Swingset tunic in vintage thrifted fabric, the 6-12 size (Coco is about 4 months here, and it is almost too small already!):

swingset tunic

Lazy Days skirt in Heather Bailey Freshcut fabric, for when Miss Coco is a tad bigger!:

Hat for Emmaline (modelled by Miss Coco) in Cascade Eco wool with some crocheted Noro yarn for the flower (this is my own simple design):

And some arts and crafts! Fun with toilet paper rolls!!
