Grandbuddy--some more April pics

Some Grandbuddy pics--





Sewing Fun--a purse and the queue

I made a purse and I'm so tickled with it!





I especially love the red bias binding that covers the seams.




I also made an eyeglass case--I could make a million of these--so cute and so easy!



I had a cutting out session on Sunday in which I cut out a swim coverup, which is nearly finished, just the sleeves and sleeve hems to finish.



a skirt, McCall's 5431,



and a white knit T, view D of Simplicity 4076. No picture, too boring.

One success, or rather two, the purse and eyeglass case, definitely spurred me on to sew a bit more, and hopefully will lead to some more successes.
Knitting is going swimmingly, some boring, some exciting.

THE BORING---

The Peter Easy vest is 12 inches long, gained an inch.


The Adult Tomten gained a lot, is now 15 inches long.


A-n-d, the sock--


THE EXCITING:
