Stealthy, sneaky Ninjas!

Will has a friend's birthday party tomorrow.  The invitation had ninjas, so going with that theme in mind I made this top for the birthday boy.  Will helped me pick the embroideries, and he told me where to place them.

Pattern is Ottobre 301 - best ever go-to-if-you-need-a-t-shirt pattern
Fabrics are Stella cotton/spandex knit and JNY rainbow waves from Crafty Mamas.
Embroidery is from Emi Oli.

And breath out...

I've had so much going on that I haven't really had a chance to stop and take photographs.   After my black binge I made two very colourful tops.  One for me and one for Moo.  Both the same.  Obviously mine is just a teensy bit bigger.

Pattern:  Farbenmix Fano (a favourite)
Fabrics:  Stella in ocean, Stenzo peacock print knit

I've also been the lucky recipient of some squishy goodness.  I made some things for a friend and in return she went way overboard!  She knit 3 pairs of socks and two shawlettes.

Mollie tried to take this one.  I told her NO WAY!

Super socks!


And I've been madly embroidering and sewing for the May 15 Gossamer Dreams stocking.  I'm doing a special collaboration with Lesley of Cherub's Kiss.   Here are some sneak peeks!
