A Work in Progress

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). 

Works in Progress
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!

And some tulips from a dear friend to remind me that spring is getting closer. This is our first spring here, and I was promised by the previous owner (and house builder!) that there's lots of bulbs to enjoy when it comes. I can't wait to meet them! 

What are you working on right now?

  1. Yay for spring being a bit closer. Even though there's always snow on the ground, I always feel like spring is just around the corner in the month of March.

    I love the pattern/colours of the vest... and the rainbow is adorable.

    Wishing you a lovely day.

    1. I loved the colors of the vest too- I'll like them even more when they're off my needles and on her! :)

  2. We have an unfinished rainbow project at our house right now too for the same reasons! Love seeing the engagement!

    1. Isn't it great to see them so involved? And it's a great lesson in patience- for both of us!
