Pillow case fun!

Over the years, I've enjoyed choosing perfect fabrics to make pillowcases for gifts. 

I decided this past Christmas that it was time to make 

personalized pillow cases for the littles in my life!

I spent a delightful hour at stache fabrics in downtown London 

choosing just the right fabric combos.

One of our littles really likes cats and regularly pretends to be a playful kitty.

Another thinks he may want to be a sea captain someday.

Another is very good at identifying many different birds, just by their calls.

And, really, they all love frogs and lily pads and anything else around a pond, 
but this seemed perfect for the youngest.

I hope they sleep well on their playful pillowcases!

A first look!

It's been almost four years since I had a new book out in the world! 

That makes it extra delightful to have TWO picture books coming out in 2022! 

Here is a look at the cover of 

While We Wait 

which will make its grand entrance this March. I'm so excited to get my hands on a copy!

 (Are you wondering what these two are waiting for?!)

√Člodie Duhameau has done an amazing job with the art. 
She manages to express so much emotion and love in so few facial lines.
I cannot wait for everyone to read and see this book!

Enjoy your day,

 Knitting toques for my grandkids is one of life's little pleasures. 

Recently I made a couple of extra-fun toques!

Stay cozy and warm,
