I swear I'm not posing Eli in all of my pictures. He shows up in nearly every picture I take somehow. He just loves to jump in front of the camera and get his picture taken.
These are the Grandma Twinkle Stars I made this morning. It only took two hours to make all seven of them with bathroom breaks and getting coffee, etc. You can find the pattern and tutorial HERE, and there's also one for Christmas Trees that are made similarly. I would suggest using the alternate Row 3 instructions. I did, but I still had to steam-iron mine under a towel to keep the corners from curling.
I was trying to get a close-up so you could see the silver and gold sparkes in the thread, but it didn't work. Just close your eyes and imagine it.
They are quick and fun to make. You can see them made in Lucy's typical colors on her blog post from thursday.
That's all I've done today. No, wait. I did a couple of loads of laundry too. But I'm still in my pajamas! I guess I could at least go brush my hair and teeth and put on some regular clothes.
