No really. More please. The workers at Joann's cut to the quarter inch. I hope to leave with the two yards I buy! Well since I prewash and dry, of course it shrunk a lot and I had to finagle all the cases.
Luckily I know how to sew, heh heh.
At the store, I looked and looked for companion fabric to make the cuff, but none worked. They were out of white flannel.
I thought, with such a stash surely I have something to match! Did I ??
It repelled matching. It shook it's flannel head in derision. It said, "you'll find no match mortal"
So I cannibalized the yardage and inserted a piece of white flannel ( I had to piece to make long enough).
We have king sized pillows.
I made it work then turned to my regular stash of dog fabrics to make one for Not Afraid of Color Poodle.
I too love a black lab, and had a girl for 10 short years named Chelsea. I miss her so much. Anyway, I thought this would help Cole dream of running with black labs.
Doesn't your dog sleep with a pillow??
I finished his pillow case this evening listening to a book on tape and the rain hitting the window.
We are waiting on the turkey breast for dinner. We made some gingerbread and some pumpkin muffins this morning, some cranberry sauce and some citrus salad traditional in our house. We opened our gifts to each other and Drew played Christmas carols on his guitar from last Christmas! He's improved and learned a lot from last year.
It's raining and getting chilled off a bit.
I sketched or tried to sketch Drew playing the guitar. I'll call it Family, as that's my next prompt.
Cole played with his three new balls and is done with them. He broke the squeaker in one already. Luckily a kind blogger told me I can buy new ones at Amazon, so I did and now I just have to repair a few toys.
Drew asked for a chef's coat for Christmas and he wore it while helping chop vegetables for the pan.
It's been raining for four days now. We can still watch a movie while having a late dinner.
Soon it will be time to take down the colored lights...
I almost have next year's word chosen. I will bring along Connections though, as I feel there is more to be learned.
