When Josh is on call I sometimes have trouble sleeping. Here is what I did last night:
These acorns are fabulous. The original idea came from another blog called Little Nummies. They used mini Nilla Wafers. I couldn't find those, but I did find mini Nutter-Butters!! I used extra peanut butter to help put the "shell" on and a little touch for a stem. Super fun and super easy!
Can you tell I couldn't sleep?
After the acorns, I decided to have fun with some Christmas material. This idea is from my friend Becca who does great work. This apron is far from perfect-but here is the miracle: I sewed something that wasn't a quilt or a receiving blanket! Yay! A big milestone for me, and I enjoyed it! I used a fat bundle of Christmas material so they came coordinated. I did have to piece a few pieces (like the strings) to get the right size. I just couldn't buy fabric by the yard with three boys at JoAnn's. Still, it was worth the trip in the rainy cold to get to make something fun! I used some extra red ribbon around the waistband just cause I had it and thought it was pretty.
