So, I have been feeling a little adventrous of late. I think it all started with the apron swap. Lots of times I’ll see something and tell myself that I could make it, but generally, it doesn’t go much farther than the internal dialogue. Once I finished the apron however, I figured I can actually do some stuff. So, I re-entered the world of baby blankets. I have made a couple in the past with varying degrees of success (I’m pretty sure the one I made for Joshua never saw the light of day!). I have never actually made blankets for my own kids, but then again, I’m also waiting until I get really good to scrapbook my wedding! This current blanket frenzy started with a blanket for a baby shower. I worked on a cute little blanket courtesy of Lisa M., and a burp cloth courtesy of Feathered Nest. I was feeling good but I forgot to take a picture, and that annoyed me to no end. On to the second blanket and burp cloth. this time I reminded myself all day to remember to photograph the end result. Once again, I forgot. So, this is the third blanket. This blanket is actually an idea I got from Doug’s sister Charlotte. I have to say that I liked it, mostly because blanket bindings are my albatross!
Anyway, normally I wouldn’t be quite so bold with my color and pattern, but this was for Courtney, and when your ringtone is an LSU fight song, then I figure you can’t go wrong with the LSU banket! (sidenote to Trisha: I bought lots of extra fabric last time I was in BR, so if you want some let me know!)
Next up were the cheesecakes. We had my sister’s sister-in-law and her family over for dinner last week. I was inspired by Southern Living Magazine to make these yummy key lime mini cheesecakes. The dessert was yummy, but the company was better, and our boys had a great time getting to know some new “cousins.”
