I made these Burp Cloths that I had seen on Homemade by Jill. They were super easy! I did one with fabric lined with flannel and the others are flannel only. So cute, handy and looking forward to new owners!
I followed her directions except I only sewed accross the middle on one and the others seem fine. I washed and dried them once and they are plenty worn looking!
If you know me, you know I'm more of an indoors kind of girl, but a post recently struck my fancy from Positively Splendid. She made some Tiered Terracotta Planters and I thought they were, well, splendid! Sadly, I have had this little rod to do a topsy-turvy planter for about a year now, I think, so it was the time. That and the sale on flowers at Home Depot and Lowes. Not to mention that I found petunias (my mom used to call my Petunia Pig when I was a baby because I was fat and my nose turned up, but I'm not scarred) today at Walmart for 50 cents! So I took the terracotta I've had for a little while, bought some spray paint and got to work...during nap time! Didn't get to finish this until CSI was on and the mosquitos were out. NO FUN, but finished before the family arrived for Mother's Day and that's all that matters! So, here you go...
Then a little other gardening. What? From me? I do not like the hot sun, so this was all done at night!
