So I finally have a FO! Yay! I just finished weaving in the ends last night, well actually this morning, at about 12:30. EJ was not feeling up to sleeping last night. Sorry this picture is a little blurry. But it still looks cute and will be perfect over her Easter dress.

I love this pattern, I have to make a bigger one for when she grows out of this but I'll wait until I get some other projects done. The only problem I have with this yard is how hard it is to weave the ends in. But I finally figured out that the slubs are attached to a white thread that is easy to cut out of the end. This was half way through weaving them in though.
And yesterday I was absolutely surprised to find a parcel card in my mail box. And this is what was waiting for me at the post office. I had entered a giveaway at Crafts from the Cwtch. I was so excited to open it that I couldn't even wait 'til I got home. So I went to my Grandma's and opened it up.
And the inside was even more exciting. A hand sewn project bag from the cutest fabric. A 7 mini skein set of hand dyed sock yarn from The Knitting Goddess. A set of DPN's for the pattern. And a free copy of the BeeKeepers Quilt. I'm so excited to start working on this pattern. I will post pictures as soon as I do.
And for your EJ picture (even though there's two of them at the top of the post). This is EJ hanging out with my brother and chewing on an orange. I tried to get the faces she was making as this was her first experience with an orange slice but my phone camera wasn't so great.
