I Did It!

I finished my first project with my new sewing machine:) I made Christmas pillows for our couches! After a successful trip to Hancock*Fabrics, I came home with two pillow forms (feather, because they are sooo much comfier), that were on sale for 40% off, aaaaand some cozy fleece for my next project: a soft, oversized winter robe in gray and pink. The fleece was 30% off to boot. Round the trip off with some new bobbins and thread (both 50% off!), and I was a happy gal. I immediately came home to stuff and sew up these cute little pillows. They are sooo soft and they have pictures of the sweetest little penguins playing in the snow. And to make it even better, there are little log cabins and Christmas trees on them too. Can you tell I'm ready for the holidays? You should be able to see the pattern better in the 2nd picture. I think I did ok for my first time:)


Happy Anniversary!

To my Ashley, and her husband, Matt! We love you guys so much, and hope you have a terrific anniversary weekend:) Like Mom said, we are so proud of the couple and the parents you have become!


I'm So Ready...

Temperatures nearing 100 degrees today, doesn't cut it for me. I don't like extreme heat, makes me nauseated. I'm tired of the heat. I'm a cool/cold weather type of gal. Here's some things I LOVE about fall:
~Blue Jeans
~Hoodie Sweatshirts
~Jackets and sometimes coats
~The smell of cold crisp air
~The colors of autumn
~Punkins (as we so fondly call them here in the south)
~Picking out the perfect punkin at the patch
~Warm, homemade, seasonal food (think punkin pies!)
~Hot chocolate from Starbuck's
~Family time by the wood burning fireplace at Daddy & Momma's
~Campfires with S'mores
~Leaf Piles
~Smells of cider and cinnamon
~Yankee Candle's Autumn collection
Ok, well, I could go on and on, but I'll stop here. We have 47 days until the first day of fall. September 22, it's on a Monday.
I'm so ready.
