baby blanket

A quick baby blanket for my three week old niece in South Carolina.

Fell in love with this pink floral print, and I love the super soft pink minky fabric. I stuck some warm and natural cotton batting in between to add some warmth.

Did a top stitch all around to add a little something special and I even attached one of my "homemade by M" tags.

Our holidays were very good, low key and quiet, just the way I love it. 

I have lots of projects to finish
-quilt for aria.
-quilt for chase
-quilt for ryan
-christmas quilt

I was also asked to make two quilts for extended family members. The oldest likes to hunt and the younger boy enjoys 4-wheeling. Finding fabric and a theme for that one, might be difficult.

On top of that, one of my New Year's Resolutions is to make and donate my quilts to Project Linus. I already have one in the works even though the new year isn't quite here.

lounge pants

This I just had to do. Forget everything else. Matching Christmas lounge pants ? Hell yeah !

I used these instructions and found the entire process somewhat painless. I say somewhat because when I first started I somehow sewed the crotch together and it took me a good 20 minutes (and Ryan) to figure out what I did wrong.

Cute enough that I think maybe Mom and Dad might also need a know.....for Christmas morning....
