I think these are the perfect size and shape for burp cloths. I did them out of flannel, and put a warm and nautral batting between them as the gal on the tutorial suggested.
A closer look at one of the fringe ones
A closer look without the fringe...I just zig zagged the edges after turning them inside out.
The tutorial suggest having coordinating fabrics like this one here is done. I only did 3 this way as I wasn't happy with my cloices. It did work out cute though on the ones I did this way.
Friday I decided to take the day off as my neck and head are kind of bothering me. It is probably not only from all the sewing, but because I bend my head down whenever I am on this computer too which is probably more than I should be, haha. But whatever it is, I am NOT liking it. Friday I went and had my nails done and visited some with the sweet girls who own the shop. I always enjoy them so. I also had the car washed and ran a couple of errands. On Sat. we picked up little Jeff and kept him for the week-end. Can't tell you how I enjoy this little guy! He is just soo sweet. I miss him so as I just don't get to see them all as much since we have moved. We went and saw Kung Fo Panda after lunching at our favorite place, and then headed out to my mom's to play some cards. Jeff was SUCH a good boy keeping himself entertained while we played for a couple of hours. We lost....and that's all I will say about that. Mom, we MUST get them next time. Then, we went to a really fun Japanese restaurant for dinner out by my mom's house. Jeff was familiar with it as he used to work in the area. Said it was the best he has ever been to, and I now officially agree with him. The gals all work in kimono’s and there is a bridge and water fountain that looks authentic and was quite neat. Little Jeff loved the whole thing, including learning to work the chopsticks. He was really pretty good at it. When we got home Grandpa & Jeff headed out to walk Elvis and went down to the lake and saw the ducks. My knees kept me from going, and Grandpa forgot the camera, so no pictures of that, though they had a wonderful time. He slept soo good, (thank goodness) and we left EARLY for San Diego the next morning for church. Jeffie was soo thrilled to see Capri, JD & Donatella and they were thrilled to see him. Their mama kept it secret that he was coming, and so the surprise was fun. Service was WONDERFUL again, and the crowd seemed just as big. After church we went over to their house where Larissa had made homemade enchiladas’ for lunch. She made them with low fat everything to accommodate me, and they were soooo yummy. We left for home after giving the kids a couple of hours to play while we sat and visited. A perfect Sunday. We came home and had dinner and then Joe came by to pick up Jeffie after his tournament that day. All in all, a really good week-end. Here are some pics....(didn't think you'd escape seeing my cuties did ya? haha)
Jeffie has grown up soo much. He amazed me at how well he is reading now that first grade is behind him, and as you can see he has officially lost both of those front teeth now. After the movie we got his hair cut...how fast it grows!
He was quite perky on these drinks with the little umbrella's for some reason...I look at his hands in this picture and it is somewhat freaky as they ARE his daddy's hands. I would swear they were actually Joe's. lol
How adorable is this little cutie? Donatella is getting soo big too. Can't believe how well she talks.
Can't believe how hard it is to get the 4 of them at the same time looking and smilin etc. This was the best we could do! Capri has officially passed up little Jeff in height. She is 8 months younger and is just finishing up KG this year. She is reading quite well too, and doing math. They teach them soo much soo early anymore, but guess it is good since they soo obviously CAN do it! And just look at how big JD is. He is only 4 and yet close to the size of his 7 year old cousin, and 6 year old sister. He is going to be such a big guy. He has such a big heart too to go with it. Just the sweetest boy. He kept picking out some of his toys and giving them to Jeffie to take home..."I WANT him to have them cuz I know how much he likes them," he would say. How sweet is that?
Well, George and his crew are finishing up so I am going to get busy this afternoon and make the pillow for the rocking chair now. I hope to make the valance for the window tomorrow, and that just leaves me with the stuffed animals. Mike & Mel bought their furninture this week-end. Soo cute...and now I am thinking we have to figure out how to make changing pad covers. We are getting there though....Hope you all have a wonderful week.
This is the set they bought, though they got theirs in ivory colored distressed wood. They did not get the shelfs however as they will use this piece as their changing table. They got a REALLY good deal on it, as the set will be discontinued. I LOVE it....I am getting excited to see little Samuel in all his new things!
