WIP::or why i had not blogged in so long

::party favors::

having a birthday is a lot of fun. i was very excited to plan and make things for the event and yet it required so much of my attention. i don't believe i looked at others blogs much in the past weeks, though it was hard at times to stay away. as more and more things were made i longed to document them but would forget and move on to the next thing.

since the party was in a park i thought it would be fun to make a garland that hung from the trees over the eating area. it was quite fun cutting out the triangles and then sewing them together. i think i will modify them a bit now and sew them closer so that they can hang in Miss A's room.

the pinwheels we a lot of fun to make as well. with a bit of finagling on Daniels part we were able to construct them so that they were both baby proof and able to spin. not an easy task at first but in the end they worked.

Did you use a pattern for the pinwheels? I would love to make some for my daughter's second birthday in a few weeks, and the baby proof factor would be great.
