getting things done

Inspired by Erin, who is crossing stuff off her list left and right, I finally got around to making the little pillow...

and extra pillow case...

for my niece's birthday gift.

Her birthday was August 11th.
(WHY am I admitting this?)
My sister was in town, so I figured if I could get this done and sent with her, she could deliver it for me. That was just the shove that I needed.

My boys LOVED this....so I hope to make some of these for us, too.
Winter is coming and their little pets are cold.

So I crossed one thing off my list, and added another.
That's about how things go around here.

Happy Monday!

Cute! A very comfortable piggy in a box!

This is an adorable idea. I am the same way. As soon as I cross something off The List, I add at least one more.

How cute! Your niece is sure to love them. Just last week, as I was making my "which gifts can I make" Christmas gift list, I decided to make doll bedding for my own little niece. Of course, if history is any indication, I'll only make about half the things on the list, so...we'll see!

Too cute! The little pig looks so cozy! I know what you mean about the projects, only I start about 3 to every one that I finish. LOL

piggy in a blanket! I love it! so cute x thanks for you message, I just loved the square ones too, I wish I had a whole tin of different coloured square buttons!!! x

How cute are you? A pig in a blanket :) Love it. Very sweet.

I don't know what it is, but my "to do list" got a lot of stuff crossed off it this weekend, but then I've added more stuff to it as well! You are right, it's just the way it goes :)

Your boys + their pet will love you for making them their own blanket and pillows.

Oh,you have such a great eye for colour + composition – you could teach a class :)

Miniature things are always cute. I hope I can see M. next weekend and give it to her.

"So I crossed one thing off my list, and added another." >> Oh, don't I know about that!

I think my boys would like those, too. I will never let them see your post, or I might get suckered into making a ton and adding more things to MY list.

Your bedding is too cute!

That is definitely how it works for me, and I'm lucky if it's just one thing that gets added, it's usually 2 or 3!

THAT is why list are hopeless. They don't work... they're endlees.
