What an exciting day, don't you agree!?! We now have a new President! Did any of you watch the inauguration this morning? I did and I have to admit that it got me all teary-eyed! This is an exciting, historical day for our country and hopefully the beginning of good times ahead!
Yesterday was also an exciting day for me as I sewed a new blanket for my son. Jake is OBSESSED with the movie CARS, and especially Lightning McQueen, so I made him a new snuggly blanket. I sewed it all by myself... without any help from my Mom and no pattern. I know those of you that are really good at sewing won't find it too impressive -- how hard can it be to sew two rectangular pieces of fabric together, right!!! Well for me, a sewing novice, it was a great accomplishment. And Jake LOVED it -- he was beaming ear to ear when I gave it to him and he said "I love it Mommy!" -- aaaaaawwwwww!!! He hasn't put it down since I gave it to him! Here he is showing it off...
It is a cute Cars fabric on one side and the other side is green (his, and my, favorite color) minky fabric. It came out really well and I am now even planning to make a cute girly one for a friend's daughter's 1st Birthday this weekend! It gives me an excellent excuse to go back to the fabric store tomorrow at any rate!
Of course now Kierstyn wants to know when she is getting one too! I explained to her that she is getting to be a big girl and she doesn't need a blankey, so I'll make her something else. I am thinking I will go ahead and try out those Easy Fit pajama pants that I had wanted to get done before Christmas, but never got to!
I still need to catch up on my quilt project and I had intended to get more done last night, but we were having terrible weather and under a tornado watch, so I didn't really feel like it. Maybe tonight!!!
