Why, yes I did have material left and yes, I will make you a small pillow, Kimmie!
I had a Christmas pillow that I must have gotten at Goodwill really cheapo and it was in like-new condition-so I used it. (On a side note-The pillow says Noel-so therefore I started humming The First Noel. I hum constantly now-and I never did before. I'm thinking humming must come with age. Dawnie told me she hums too-so I guess I'm not the only one.)
Anyhow-I used the Goodwill pillow and took the red fabric (previously curtains) and made a case, folded the end in and stitched some darts to close it-then tada-a new pillow. Then I made some more frayed rosettes to embellished it. I made them from scraps from my stash and a scrap from Kim's sheet.

I embellished with these frayed rosettes, which I love. They were easy and fun to make. Except when I burned my finger with the hot glue gun. (They call it "hot" glue for a reason.) I followed this tutorial from Made by the Mama Monster blog. Hope you like it, Kim.

And doesn't everybody have a pink ladder outside their bedroom door? (It saves me from dragging it up two flights of stairs everytime I need to change a lightbulb or get in the "attic". I bought this at a yardsale for 4 dollars years ago and I painted it this pinkish color-it was just too gray for my taste!)

I should have been doing other things today-but I made a little video instead. It's not perfect but-man, I spent enough time on it. My computer doesn't have sound either. Can you hear the music?
This is my daughter, niece and nephew in case you didn't know.

I had a routine doctor's appointment today. Yes-THAT kind of doctor. Fun, fun. My doc has a great bedside manner, so it's bearable. He's awesome.
But as if I weren't nervous enough, I was snapping pictures when I was left alone. Then I hurried up and stowed my camera in my purse. La, la, la, la, la......
Done, done stick a fork..........never mind. Good riddance for another year (or so)!☻
Ahhhhhh-yeah-that's better. Much better.☺

***Attention all NieNie fans-she'll be on Oprah on Wednesday!***
I scooched over my little book shelf and made room for it in my bedroom. I'll sit pretties and books on it.
Speaking of pretties-see the baby afghan on the bottom. My paternal grandmother made and gave that to me well before I was a mother. But why, why, why didn't I get a photo of my baby with it? I guess I was too busy to worry about such things then. Oh well-at least I have it and can enjoy looking at the beauty of it now.
