My Stars! Blue & Yellow Pajamas

My daughter had to wear PJs to school the last day before Christmas break, so she picked these fabrics out for her "Polar Express" day at school. They do have a yellow cuff on the hem of the pants, sleeves, and the yellow pockets (her fave color). She also wore them on Christmas Eve. Nothing feels better than new PJs on Christmas Eve, right?

Fabric Strip Crocheted Bowls

My sister, probably a year ago, gave me the bowl in the middle and several balls of the fabric strips. She has trouble with her wrists, and after making the back one, she decided she didn't have the "stamina" to make two more. I made the one on the right last night and the oval one on the left this morning (sorry, no patterns). I really enjoyed this project. They are all about 12 inches across, so they are rather large, heavy duty, and thick. This was fun and my girls have both requested one for their room. I'll do them when my hands recover. It is tiring to the hands to work with the fabric strips, but WOW what a neat project. I know my sis will like them!
