I've been feeling a little crafty lately... My friend Jana brought over some fabric that she wanted to make into curtains for her living room - and there was just enough left over to make a couple pillows for their couch! I'd seen a pillow like this on some website or other and decided that I'd try to make it.
I think it turned out pretty good! The ruffled part is a bit poofy - and I didn't really like it at first, but it's growing on me.

And for some reason, everyone around me is having a baby. Unfortunately - all these babies are living in Las Vegas, so I can't smooch their faces :( But I can spend some of my free time making them cutesy onesies! I got the idea for these at Happy Together. I loved the "cute as a button" theme - but the print just wasn't my style. So instead I fished around our spare change jar for all those buttons that come with new clothes but never get used and came up with this!
|The tag says "for Lyla, who's cute as a button!"|
I only hope the onesies fit the little girlies by the time it gets to them! Babies grow so gosh darn fast!!

|I tried to get fancy here and do two layers, but most of them blended together anyway.|

And to even out all that sugar:
John picked brussel-sprouts as our vegetable last night. That's right - we ate them voluntarily. No buttery goodness required.
