Nightstand re-do

I had plenty of time today to tackle not only cleaning Hannah’s room, but giving her bedside table a small makeover, as I waited for Safelite to come replace the rear window in my Toyota Camry that got smashed out over the weekend.

New pajamas for the little one

This weekend I used some spare time to whip up another five pairs of pajamas for my little girl, who has more than outgrown the ones I made her 10 months ago. I ran to JoAnn’s for fabric for a quilt binding but got sidetracked when I saw that all their flannel was $2.99/yard. Hannah’s wearing a size 5 now, so I couldn’t get by …
