I've really tried to make a commitment these last few days of summer vacation to not turn the TV on in the mornings. During the begining of the summer I wanted nothing more then to roll out of bed in my pjs and spend the morning on the couch watching the morning shows, and the cooking channel (my new love). I got nothing done. So here lately I've be getting up and in the shower first thing in the morning and then finding other things to occupy my time. I found a great new devotion book that I have been able to do every morning. The Faith Book of Jesus by Renee Johnson. It's a book for 20 somethings so I've got about a year to finish! Actually I think it's really great for any age. Doing a devotion in the morning really sets my day of in the right direction and I have found that I have a much more positive outlook.
With all this extra time in the morning I have a few projects I have been working on. A girl at work is having her third baby boy in a few short weeks. I made these for her boys but wanted to make something for her baby shower.
So I made these. Her husband is a big apple/computer guy. I thought "geek" one might be a little to much but she and her husband really liked them.
These edges look wet because I used this on it. It keeps the edges of the fabric from fraying and drys clear. I got it Hobby Lobby.
During the shower we wanted to do a fun activity. So we each did some simple stiching on a square of fabric and I am going to make them into a baby blanket. I'll post some pictures when I am done.
I have also been working on a project that has been inspired by this. I'll do a whole post on that when it's finished. Don't expect my to look as good as the inspiration though!
