I just finished the last session of my Wood Type Letterpress class. I'm psyched to come away with a set of "egg" and "pomme" note cards. I didn't really plan on any particular word before coming to class, but rather looked into the box, chose the letters that I thought were most interesting and played a little game of Scrabble. It just so happens that the egg card is very timely with Easter & Spring and I can imagine the two framed as a pair in my kitchen.

When I signed up for the class I had my head set on making something poster size, but the lack of duplicate letters in some of the alphabets forced me to be a little less ambitious and more minimal with the text. I'm really happy with the results!

I'm still in the midst of baby-centric projects, with a focus on cold-weather hats at the moment. By next winter Baby Janus will be 6 months and ready for snow, and this Aunt is going make sure he/she stays warm!
I found this charming print at Purl in the Anna Maria Horner Folksy Flannel collection. I used the same fabric for both the interior and exterior, so the hat has a double layer of warmth, and finished it off with twill tape ties.
I'm thrilled how this folksy print when paired up with the Lotta Jansdotter baby bonnet pattern, creates a vintagey Scandinavian look.
