Stitching but not sewing

I've been crocheting like mad.  At least I'm stitching something.

I got the brainy idea to make birthday presents for my sister and mother.  Something has possessed me because I also wanted to make booties for my newest nephew.

These little booties were a lot harder to make than you would think.  I still need to re-stitch the laces (too short) and make a second "star" for the right shoe.

I made these long wrist warmers for myself while trying to use up some really old acrylic yarn in my stash.  The pattern is from Naturally Caron and it's called Memphis Fingerless Gloves.  I made a ton of mistakes on one glove but I'm still pretty happy with them.

My sister loved them so I'm planning a pair for her.  I'm also making a few other things for her but I can't go into detail now because occasionally she reads my blog.

Even though I still have several crochet projects planned, it is time to hit the sewing machine.  I bought several pairs of pants from Eddie Bauer about a month ago.  I haven't worn them because I haven't hemmed them.  (Lazy, I know.)  Well, the only 3 properly hemmed pants I own have officially shrunk from so much washing and drying.  If I don't hem my newly acquired pants soon, I may be going pants-less!  In Memphis, no one would probably bat an eye but I'd rather cover myself nonetheless.

Have a great weekend!
