Look at this sweet little gnome blanket I got in the mail from my sister. I was so happy when I read on her blog that this blanket was for me (well, not actually for me, but you know...). I LOVE those gnomes. It's backed with the softest fluffiest fleece ever. I've never felt anything quite like it. Thanks Linda! It's beautiful and so well made. She also included this sweet fabric from moda that I've never seen before. It is so cute.
Look at that little bear fishing, ironing, doing the laundry. I'll have to think of a fun project for that fabric. And I must say, Linda, that was a cruel joke you played on my kids...packing it all in a Lego box like that! They thought it was a present for them and whined all afternoon about wanting those kind of Legos--as if we don't already have a ton of Legos all over the house. So today we're off to the store to see if there are any like that. Yes, I'm a pushover. Next time I send you something, I'm going to package it in a chocolate box. Heh heh.
I came across this great tutorial for lined drawstring bags from Amy of Happythings. This was fun, easy, and addictive. I'm going to be on the lookout from here on out for cute ribbons and other things to use for drawstrings. These would make great gift bags, if I could only think of some gifts to put in them. Maybe a trip to the Body Shop is in order?
