I have three takers for my PIF! I'm so thrilled!! So here some pictures of the PIF's.
First Kate: I made her a set of 12 cards; 4 monogrammed, 2 blank, 4 customizable, 1 Birthday and 1 Thank you. I was rather pleased with the way I was able to make the "customizable" ones. I stamped the base with my favorite lady bugs and added a cardstock ribbon slider. Then I stamped sentiments in white and punched them out. They fit inside the circle of the ribbon slide and Kate can determine what sentiment she wants for each card. Brilliant - if I do say so myself! (The little baggie in the center holds the 12 or so sentiments.) I think I'm going to make a quick notebook and pen set to round out the PIF.
For Dawn, I'm knitting a lace scarf in a worsted weight. Her favorite color is red and I had this great Red Wool Ease in my stash. I love it when that happens. Now in the pattern notes, the designers says this can be knit in 4 hours!! I beg to differ! I've been working on this scarf for about 3 hours so far and I'm only about a quarter of the way done! Mind you, I should know better than to try and knit a lace pattern while the kids are awake. But even still, there is NO WAY I could knit this in 4 hours. Crikey!! (Said in my best crocodile hunter voice.)
And last but not least is Susan. Her favorite color is purple and she really liked the Fake Isle hat I knit for my dad. I think I have the stuff in my stash to make something, but I need to check.
Thanks for playing ladies!! Knit on!
