Holiday Prep?

 
Can you say procrastinate?  I feel like I have a handle on things this year, so I am thrifting, crafting, reading and otherwise occupying myself with things other than holiday prep.
I found this oh so cute sweater for sweet p.  Everyone needs a festive holiday sweater, even a savvy New Yorker like Penny. ;-)


 
I always pick up blankets with Winnie the Pooh.  Not exactly for Penny, but for all the baby play around here with the girls.  They are all going to be great Moms someday.

 
Trying to print another transfer of this cool graphic, I mistakenly hit sepia.  Now it's my favorite.  I also found in my stash this quilted muslin.  I've made so many pillows with this fabric through the years, it's just beautiful.  This one is for me. 

 
One of Kristen's friends is in need of some TLC.  Kris asked if I might still have some of this IKEA fabric... It is our all time favorite. I looked through my stash and found enough to make a few pillowcases.  Pillowcases lead to more pillowcases.  I find them the most fun thing to sew.  I ended up sewing seven on Sunday, and managed to finish them up this morning.  The Christmas print is anything but traditional...owls!  I used what I had, the bright green that is repeated in the print, for some cute and unusual holiday pillowcases.


I also found this matilesse, Shabby Chic brand pillow sham, still in the package for a song at the thrift.  It's going right on the guestroom bed, freshly washed and ready to welcome our visitors from the east. 

How I will get anything done after the arrival of my grand daughter, is the question of the day.  I am so excited, over the moon, you might say anticipating her arrival.   I am not alone, as Grandpa, the guys, and the whole family are anxious to see her again and for some, meet Penny for the first time. Be still my heart!

Well, I've procrastinated enough for this morning.  Grateful, grateful, truly blessed and duly, GRATEFUL!
Thanks for stopping by my friends.  Have a wonderful day.

How about doing yourself a favor and promise not to get anything done while Sweet P is visiting. That time will be gone in a flash. The cleanup can be done once its 'wheels up' for them!

Cherish every second with your family. Blessing to you dear Penny.
