Yesterday, my boyfriend brought to my attention that this year is already a quarter over. Really? Where did the time go? I had so many plans for this year and have barely been able to execute them. But in my defense, I have been caring for a baby that is allergic to just about everything. This has made him extremely cranky. Constant trips to the doctor and a baby that wants to be held ALL THE TIME has left me with very little time to get anything done.
I think the doctor and I have finally found a solution. So now Baby Bear has been calm enough for me to attempt to do some of the stuff I had planned. I have been able to crochet quite a bit but I just have not had the opportunity to post anything. I wanted to release some projects for Easter but that clearly didn't happen. My Etsy Shop has not been touched in forever. Oh well. I guess I still have time to get things done. In the meantime, while I collect myself, here's what I have been working on this year.

Now you can attach the appliques to the onesie by either using fabric glue or needle and thread in matching color. I chose to use fabric glue. I you are going to go this route please take note that a little goes a long way. I also put a piece of cardboard in between the onesie to keep the glue from seeping through to the other side. Let dry according to the glue's instructions.
