Devin's Handi-Work


Lately Devin can be found under a warm blanket on the couch watching Avatar and doing a project of some kind.
He surprised me the other day saying, "Mom, I made this for you". He had made me a crocheted heart. It was so sweet and thoughtful. I love it.

Then yesterday he finished his first embroidery project. He made a ying/yang symbol. He was very proud of his work! I am going to find a frame to put it so he can display it in his room.

We are going to start making Christmas gifts soon. If anyone has any good ideas or websites with project ideas please send them our way!

Do you know Soulemama?

She just recently gave birth, so some of her posts lately are pre-written contests... except today's post, which is a sweet pic of her new wee one in some knitted pants. Someone in the comments said, "They're the size of a potholder!" How sweet is that?
