I'll try to be better about blogging, but if you don't see me, well you know that life is busy and I have more important things I must do.
Merry Christmas and big hugs,
|My beautiful new flexsteel chair. The ottoman actually went with another chair, but I loved the design and I didn't want a huge ottoman. This is big enough for my feet and Rascal the cat to nap on, so it's all good. I ordered a pretty throw from Pier 1 for the chair and until then I have a quilt on it, but I don't like the colors of the quilt. So next year, sometime, I will be making a quilt for my chair, I just have to figure out the colors, pattern, etc. As you can see the old side table is way to short for the chair|
|When I picked up my (to heavy) magazine basket, the handle broke. Oops. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found this.|
My Aunt Jean loved it the minute she saw it but they don't have them at her NC Hobby Lobby, thankfully I was able to find
another one just like mine at my Hobby Lobby and will be able to ship it to her with some other pretties I've been making
for the Aunties in celebration of Christmas. We don't call them Christmas presents, we just send each other stuff all the time and it's so much fun. I am so blessed to have my two wonderful Aunties in my life!!
|Like I said, I needed new side tables, so this is the new table by the older chair (Maddie's chair)|
|New side table by my chair. The other tables were shorter than the arm of the chair and I just knew I'd spill coffee all over my pretty new chair, the carpet, etc. So these tables are perfect and I can put hand sewing on that second shelf!|
|I make lattes for us everyday and so I needed a new machine that could do the work. I settled on the Gaggia Classic and the burr grinder for it. So now I freshly grind my beans and make our lattes. Madison won't let us forget to make "the beverages" as we call them because she gets a milkbone (like she would if we went through a drive thru latte place) and then a special treat of either a greenie, jerky bites or a peanut butter kong. Yes, she is very spoiled and loved.|
|Last but not least - our new bike. No more worries about falling backwards on that darn treadmill. I'm such a klutz I was worried I would do just that and I just don't need to hurt anything else or have to have anything else fixed if I could help it.|
|Hey, what are you doing with that darn camera again..............|
|My new coffee table with the new table runner I made |
and showed a picture of in my last post.
|The old coffee table was a bit shorter and 30 inches square, so almost double the width of this one.|
|I just love this lamp and now all of us have one because my other|
Aunt loved it so much that she has one now as well. It really is pretty.
|This sticker made me laugh, not sure where I'll put it - probably on the bulletin board in my sewing room .|
|2 adorable owl towels - I love owls|
|Isn't this little piggy cute - oh my goodness I love it. It's sort of bowl shaped.|
|Measuring spoons with a wine theme|
|And last, but not least an adorable owl trivet.|
|It was a photo of Haystack Rock in Cannon beach and some batiks to border it.|
Very quick and simple and I love how it looks.
|Burp Clothes for the baby girl our niece is having.|
|Burp Clothes for the baby boy a friend is having.|
|Lucky me, Rascal gave it an inspection when I got home|
|A close up of the fabric. It's for a boy and the nursery theme is woodland creatures.|
|I may be naughty, but I'm so cute it doesn't matter!!|
