Little Red Riding Hood

Oh my! What big ric-rac you have! The better to charm your kitchen with, my dear.
This Little Red Riding Hood towel is going to Stacey as part of her Storybook Stitches prize.  I know it's been awhile and her prize should already be to her, but I'm a little slow with my crafting mojo these days.  The pattern for this sweet little character is an embroidery pattern by Tasha Noel of A Little Sweetness.  She has the cutest patterns ever!
Long 10 hours work days recently have me in a bit of a project funk when I do get home, but I have a soft buttery colored spring sweater on the knitting needles for myself that I plan on finishing by Memorial Day weekend.  That's the goal anyway.  I also have a knit and felted spring bag that is nearly done and I will be finishing it up this weekend, no excuses allowed. 
What are you working on right now?  Adrienne of Some of a Kind is hosting May(d) For Me this month.  As crafters and mom's, we tend to make things for others and rarely keep something for ourselves, so Adrienne wants you to take the month of May and make something just for yourself.  What a grand idea.  She hosted this last year as well and I made myself the cutest pair of jammy pants.  Join in, pamper yourself this month with a project just for you.  We'd love to see what it is...

Adorable! Both of them!
I wish I had to make something for anyone, including myself. I have too many irons in the fire right now. My crafting may just be on hold until winter time.

Great new header! After going to Maine, I'm loving lighthouses.

And your stitchery came out great. I've got to head over to Adrienne's sight to check this out.
