My sister-in-law had a birthday coming up and I really wanted to make a beach blanket for her even though it’s a bit of a sad gift to give in the fall; poor little thing will have to stay packed up until summer, which here in Seattle is a very very very long ways away. But I love our beach blanket so and I thought she might like one, too. I chose all pink fabrics because she’s that kind of girl (yay!). I used the beach blanket pattern, which is posted here for free.
And speaking of summer, we are all decked out for Christmas at our house. We did it right this year, too–a real tree (the very first one I’ve had since moving out of my mom’s house!), over 1,000 lights on the house (thank you hubby), and all sorts of decorations inside. I even picked up a gingerbread house and goodies to make with the little one, got my advent calendar all made and ready (in November no less), have the Christmas cards ready to go, and just two gifts left to buy (okay and a few to make still). Wowza are you impressed. We sat inside with a fire and ginger whoopie pies last night watching the lights and listening to Christmas music. We are serious about Christmas this year, people. Hoping you are getting in the spirit, too.
