Sweatshirt is Done!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather was nice and sunny here in Hamilton, but a little on the chilly side.

I finally finished the Top Down Sweatshirt for Paisley's little friend next door. Unfortunately not in time for the party on Saturday but it did go in the bag with the other part of the present. I just kept the last sleeve that needed to be done on the stitch holder then took the sweater home with me to finish up. The sweater went over well at the party with the parents. I'm glad that they thought it was cool even though it wasn't quite ready yet. They especially liked the little flower buttons I stitched. :-)
Paisley had a blast at the party! It's only the 3rd birthday party that she's ever been too. Amanda, my neighbour had a bunch of crafty stuff organized for the kids. I designed and cut little crowns out of bristol board for her as she was busy running around like a chicken with her head cut off getting ready for the party. She had glitter glue, ribbon, little tiny fabric butterflies and flowers, stickers and the funky fabric scissors that make the neat edges (sorry can't think of the actually name of that type of scissor). Instead of cake she made giant cupcakes and the kids each got to decorate their own. Every kind of sprinkle under the sun was in bowls at the table, it was messy but fun for the kiddies!
Well, I'm going to jet and take little miss ants in her pants outside, she's going insane here beside me right now and needs to burn off this penned up energy.
Have a great day all!
