So often, it's easy to post finished projects. Today, in celebration to the spring that's slowly in progress around us- the warmer breezes are coming!- I'm posting a few pieces of what we're currently working on instead. Because sometimes the process takes awhile, especially with little hands about (smile).
We began this collage rainbow two weeks ago. We've spent two sessions on it, with two colors to go. I underestimated how entrancing it would be to a preschooler to cut the paper into little pieces & glue them on. Isia also modified the top of the paper to be "more rainbow-like." Was I expecting to spend so much time on this project? No, but that's when I need to step back and let her work happen.
And here's my work in progress. The pattern is "Another plain vest" by Pickles. I'm doing the 5-6 size, partly because Isia's growing like a weed lately and partly because it was the free version. It doesn't hurt that she should be able to wear it for awhile either! I'm finishing up the back part, which is always the hardest part for me. So close... and so far away. And all those ends to weave back in. Here's to pushing on!
