Her lazy version as you can see, she is only doing this in the hopes of a cookie when they come out of the oven.

Oh Pinterest.................

I am so obsessed with Pinterest seriously I want to make everything I see.   Here is a little pillowcase for one of Mia's pillows, glad I found this tutorial 'cause I still hadn't purchased a case for the pillow at Nana's house.
Once you can follow along with the pattern it's quite simple but the first few minutes of trying drove me crazy.
I still managed to make 2 pieces (front and back) instead of one entire piece of fabric but it turned out fine.

Here is the link for the tutorial.  and a pic of my finished case.   Yes, I could have embroidered it too but really...........there is enough going on with the material.  I did however embroider her swim day beach towel with her name and a fishey on it :)

Toddler size work partner Kerri made one too. (standard size)

Oh so very cute...........

But Never again will I make one of these.

1 day later and 5 gazillion little thread bunnies here is the finished product, a beach cover-up for Mia.

IF you do attempt to make one of these, beware it's messy.  Wish I had a serger that would have made it a bit easier.  Here is the website that started it .

 I really need to stay off Pinterest for a while.............get way too many ideas that I think I must try out.

It actually fits too......................

Someone likes dogs

It's been a year in our household without a furry friend and even with Mia around there is a little something missing.  Mia seems to like large dogs but hates little dogs that come to her and jump or yap which is fine by me since we are a big dog house anyway.  
Soon we will be adding to our home again and are waiting for the right Great Dane(s) to cross our path.
She has been asking for a doggy to come sit with her at night so hopefully when the real thing sits on her oh did I say that.........I mean sits on her bed she will be fine with it.  Remember we are talking Great Danes here people....they sit on you :)    She was totally fine with Moose when she first got home and still calls some big dogs Moosey.

And we are in June....................
