this is my latest project! it's nothing fantastic, but it's something! it is similar to a "nap mat" if you've ever seen one of those. the bottom is flannel and has a cute animal print on top (with extra batting in the middle). attached is a fleece blanket. originally, i bought the material for a quilt for the boys...then i got the material. i ordered it online and expected the animals to be much MUCH smaller. they are HUGE and i knew i couldn't cut it into little pieces to quilt without loosing the cute animals! then recently, the idea was to make these "sleeping bags" as we're affectionately calling them, for the boys while we're away. i want them to remember how much i love them, even when i am not there to tell them that every night. i even just got the news that we might not even be able to call! :( well, i'm hoping to get the second one sewn up before we leave in 1 week, in between all the laundry and packing!! i'm just not sure who i want to have which color...there is a brown and a red one. hopefully the boys will LOVE them and i will get some satisfaction that my love is wrapped around them every night!!!
though i had a much more fun way of announcing it on here (please still view the wordless wednesdays post NEXT WEEK), hubs has already shared it so please see the "BIG NEWS!!!" blog from my other site for an update!
p.s. the wordless wednesdays post from next week is one i set up months ago when we found out. it was my way of telling everyone when i wasn't really 'allowed to' yet and also shows my excitement for telling blogging world!
sometimes life gets busy and before i know it, a LONG time passes before the next blog entry is added! i am reminded of this when i check other friends blogs and they have several new entries, but even more so when joe sits me down and says, "wife, you're not blogging!". hehe, when the hubs notices, you know it's been too long! so here is some of the stuff from the last month or so, and i promise, more exciting stuff will come!
