About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Taggie Blankets and Huby Hats

This, my friends, is a Huby (rhymes with Ruby) hat.
Really, it's a taggie blanket with the letter "H" on it. Ruby
is "wearing" it (much to her dismay) and so we called it her
"Huby".:) See how nicely the ribbons stayed on the right?
Then take a little peekie on the left. Not so pretty...

Not to be discouraged, I tried again! The other side is
yellow fleece. I think it turned out nicely and then I added
a little toy for the baby with a baby link (Wal Mart). The
Sonic gift card is so his siblings can go to Sonic for ice
cream. Everyone is happy!

This is for a little baby girl.... The other side is flannel.
I adore flannel and Fall is just around the corner.... right?

What have you been creating? Is anyone making
Christmas presents yet?

Hi Lori
I think the Taggie Blankets are a great idea. You have made them beautifully. The fabric looks great and I like the little gifts you added. Ruby makes a cute model with her Huby!
I am not crafting at the moment. I can't think about Christmas yet.

I am making Christmas presents....Ok, they are cut out and awaiting stitching on my sewing table. But it's a start!
Those little taggie blankets are so cute!

Christmas? Really? It's been in the high 90's and close to 100 a few days. I can't think about Christmas when it's this hot. I will, however, be wishing I had thought ahead come early December when I don't know what to get anyone....

Love the Taggie blankets. Very neat! And a great idea with the Sonic card for the siblings. So very thoughtful!

If you sign up for their Borders reward they will email you 33% and 40% coupons off a book or certain purchases!! I use them alot. And I always have my chai tea and warm chocolate chip cookie and look at all The Somerset magazines I can!! with pen and paper writing down ideals!! I love the class the girls took! We most certainly need alot of that in America right now!! How can you not fall in love with that Ruby!! She's the cutest!! Take care, XO Fran.

Adorable Lori....you rock.

Heather said...

Give Ruby a snug from all of us:)

Em said...

YES! I am cranking out my little clutches for Christmas but I NEED to make my niece a M taggy blanket! How stinking cute! I love that you put the teether ring on them, I never thought of that when I made mine. Brody still carries his around but the funniest part is he puts it on his head and says "hat!" haha!

Robin Beck said...

Wow Little Sis look at you go! They are really super cute and I know babies love them!
Now Ruby on the other hand...Precious little pumpkin Ruby.

Oh my goodness, I'm still so behind on my google reader, I'm just reading this. Henry *loves* his "H", it's definitely one of his favorite toys....he's a fabric chewer in general, loves to chew blankets and such, and the kids are always saying, "Mom! Where's Henry's H?"
