Cardboard Box Moment

I had one of those cardboard box moments this weekend. You know what I'm talking about - when you realize that your child is having more fun with the box that the expensive toy / appliance came in than the actual item received. John had an absolute ball carrying around his 1/2 monkey. It was quite delightful to watch. Despite the a-ha moment, I finished Big J (I got to name this one). Gill had asked where these monkey's came from - here's the tutorial I followed.



I also cranked out the two baby blankets for my friend who is having twins. I had had the football fabric for some time but was unsure what to do with it. The dad is an ACC football referee ... perfect. I knew I would put it to good use, someday!





And just for the record, I'm about 100 pages into Amazing Grace. Man oh man. It's good.

Oh Adrienne, the blankets are gorgeous! What special gifts.
I love that bangle dot fabric. You put yours to good use; mine still sits in my closet waiting for inspiration. :)

You are a sewing maniac!!! Gotta make one of those blankets one of these days....

No problem about the Echino fabric - you should get some though to make a wristlet for yourself :) That's usually how I squeeze in fabric indulgences that hubby doesn't care for...
