I love the marshmallow!

your clothing/costume skills are wonderful!  I love them both...the little details you added are special and make them your own...was the floral fabric vintage?

And the hoop is very cute as well...great inspiration piece...

So many great things!  I've just gone thru the last 50 pages -- the talent here is amazing.  And y'all are so productive -- you've turned out blankets, furniture, even entire babies since I was last here!

I've got two major garden projects to post; just waiting until I get the mulch down and they look better.  A few other things are in the works -- as always -- but I have two quick knits to add to my list.  

22. Ari's cotton top and hat

used just half a hank of the Bernat's handicrafter cotton to make this "Katja" top (from knitty) and "Sundrop" hat.  A good friend and her newly adopted daughter recently came to a garden swap with me, and I realized the baby really needed a sun hat.  Then I figured she needed a top to go with it..... I've got tons of cotton, and I think this could be a summer-long thing!  
If you're looking for quick toddler knits, these are really great:
Katja Top http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161564.0
Sundrop hat http://fpea.blogspot.com/2010/04/free-pattern-fridaysundrop.html

23. Capucine hat

I fell in love with the capucine hat posted on this site -- like so many other Craftsters.  As much as I like making hats for other people, I don't particularly like wearing them.  But this one really appealled to me.  So I used some super special yarn from my stash and jumped right in.  And this is why we knit a gauge swatch -- it's waaaaaay too small for me.  But I figure I'll find the right sized recipient with little trouble -- and I still want to make one for myself!

Hope to check back soon with more progress -- and collect more inspiration!

.was the floral fabric vintage?

Thanks everyone!  The fabric is new not vintage unfortunately but it was a vintage pattern I made it from.

Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to Epcot I go!
