On Friday morning I had a rather last minute appointment to have my upper wisdom teeth removed. Two mornings later, I am feeling remarkably well. Even better than before, really, as the left one had been giving me increased pain over the last two weeks and now, like magic, I have none.
The littles went to my in-laws for the weekend so that mommy could rest without too much guilt. And I have. It's been wonderful to sit in front of the tube and watch chick flicks and get that much closer to completing my dottie angel patchwork afghan. It's going to be wonderful.
I also took some time to finish up some hand sewing on a mini garland for a mini friend who is celebrating a birthday later this afternoon. I can't wait to take photos of it in the proper space... am hoping it will be as darling as I have planned. Am also hoping her mom doesn't mind that I took it into my own hands to add my touch on her daughter's new vintage inspired bedroom!
Last week was erin's pillow challenge. I had grand plans of making 4, had 2 laid out, and made one. Oh well! This one was big, at 24" x 24", and I added a zipper and extra touches like thrifted eyelet trim and tag, so that counts, right? The back is solid pink, which makes me happy. (Heidi, the pink is for you. Now there is a touch more pink in my house.) The grey tag is a tiny scrap stowaway from my Seattle weekend.
Maybe it counts that I recently made two polka dotted zippered pillows for this same couch not too long ago? That would put me at 3, which is totally not slackerish! Right? Right. Ok. I feel better. And that's not just the painkillers talking!
I was loving the light and warmth in my living room this morning, which was the whole reason I got out my camera. I jumped up and took a photo. I didn't straighten any pillows or move the dogtoys or overturned laundry-basket-come-side-table out of the way. This is just the way it was and it felt cozy.
(I am so glad that I set about putting up a few house decs last weekend, too, as this weekend I was out of commission and I will be out of town for the next two. All that is left are the trees -- one big and one little -- and that seems doable at this point.)
Many wishes to you for a special sunny and warm Sunday afternoon.
