My Favorite Things

Monday was my first day back after a 3-week vacation. It's been tough getting myself and the fam back into a routine. A lot more difficult than normal.

I think it is because I enjoyed my time off so much. There was the usual holiday hub-blub, but what I enjoyed most was my sewing. I made three pillows and two aprons!

This is one of the pillows I made. It's the tooth fairy version. Pattern available here.

I don't have as much time now that I'm back to work, but I am determined to schedule regular dates with my sewing machine. I'm currently working on a set of 'live, laugh, love' pillows for my living room. After that I'll be making an apron for a swap. This is my first swap and I totally excited! It's a valentine's swap and you can find more about it here.

Wish me luck and I'll keep you all posted on the details of my progress!

Love, love, love this. I think I'm going to try to do this for Gremlin. I'm just NEVER gonna find something his name on it, so I'll just have to do it myself. SCARY!

I think Hailey would like a pillow like that. Don't you? Ha! Too bad her mom can't sew.
