This N' That...............

Today it was rainy and cold so it was GREAT that we had all our errands done and could "just be" at home and enjoy the clouds and rain. After getting all the laundry done and mopping my floors I got an itch to do something creative. I picked up this material at JoAnn's yesterday. My 9 month old niece has to have surgery on the 15th of Dec. and since her mom and dad have nicknamed her lady bug I thought this would be perfect for her bed at the hospital. So I made this really simple soft blanket for Alexandra. I hope she loves it! ;)

Then I decided I had all this beautiful material in my sewing box and my couch pillows desperately needed a face lift so I made some slip covers. A little mix-matchy but I love that look so it works in my earth toned house.

Last night we had the pleasure of having dinner with some friends and then the kids made turkey hand print cookies.

The little ones really got into their cookies. Too fun!!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
