So domestic

For the last month or two I feel like I have been very domestic. :) (Ok, when I say domestic I am by no means a Martha, but maybe more like the lady that walks Martha's dog...maybe) I think am starting to realize the free time I have now is quickly coming to a close. Anyway, here are a few things I have done lately:

Jeff has been wanting a BYU fleece blanket for a long time now. So when he was in Utah he went ahead and bought some, I finally took the hint and put it together.

I was so proud of this stich. I had a friend teach it to me a couple of years ago but hadn't tried it out since. So I thought it would be perfect to sew the two pieces of fleece together.

I made this tutu for Morgan a while ago but I just think it is so fun I had to post it.

These are the hair clips we made with Jeff's Aunt Melissa when we were in Utah, isn't it so cute!!! I wish I had a better picture but I couldn't get Morgan to sit still.

So, I made this skirt a while ago with high hopes because my friend made one and it was so cute! It is ok, not my favorite but such is life. :)

I bought this flannel when I was thinking I might be having a boy, but alas it will have to wait a few years....that or I have it posted on my Etsy shop. I LOVE it though and hopefully I can find more of this baseball flannel one day.

Jeff's sweet Grandma taught me how to crochet around the edge of flannel blankets and I think it is so fun! I think I received four of these kind of blankets for Morgan and I used them ALL the time. So when I watch t.v. I will pull out one of these blankets to work on so I don't feel like I am just wasting time.

I bought a bunch of these crocheted headbands online and have had lots of fun putting them together. I also put these on my Etsy shop...just because I would have WAY to many if I kept them all!

I am so impressed with your sewing skills woman! I've been wanting forever for someone to show me how to crochet around flannel blankets...we got a few of those when Payton was born, and they're the best. And I love the headbands! When we have a girl (someday) I'll buy some from you!!

So awesome Kim!! I love it all, that skirt for Morgan is so dang cute, and she is so cute bytheway:) Every time I see pictures of her I think, "she is the luckiest girl, because she gets to have Kim as her mom!" That is a very true statement, she must be so fun and so nice. I also loved the baseball blanket, so so cute. Someday it will be so fun for you to use:) I love you!

Holy smokes, I am so not domestic, and you make me want to be a little more. Way to go. I still can't accept you being all grown up and everything--I still tell myself I am still a kid sometimes. . .
