Great Project Day!

So much for my sleepy nights.....last night wasn't one of them. I went to bed around midnight and was up by 4:30....oh well, guess it could have been worse. I'm surprisingly not very tired. I did lay down for a while on the couch, but couldn't get back to sleep. So, I decided to work on my boppy cover for my new little boy. I bought this brown very very soft chanielle fabric with raised dots all over it. I had a cover for my boppy so I used that as my pattern and cut around that. My husband was nice enough to get my bobbin loaded in my machine. I always struggle with that part. I have a Janome, the machine that only costs around $50, but it worked like a charm. I'm so excited to have that done and to know I did it all by myself!

I have 4 12x12 picture frames painted red waiting to dry. I'm making something similar to what I saw in the Pottery Barn Kids magazine. (except for a fraction of the cost). I just have these frames to finish and one more thing to hang on the wall and the room will be finished and ready for pictures to share. My goal is to get everything finished before the end of the weekend!

Speaking of pictures to share, I went to a friend's house yesterday to take fall pictures of Ava and here is how they turne out! The last one is Ava with Buster the cat....he is so cute and cuddly!

Ava girl looks SO adorable all decked out for fall. Your pics came out great Alicia. Congrats on getting another project finished up -- doesn't it feel good to 'wrap things up'? :) Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I'm not sure I've ever seen a more photogenic child! Do you scrapbook? or digi scrapbook at least? Amazing photos. Maybe she'll be a vet someday.
