Lots of comments on Binkie Bibs!

I think I get more correspondence on Binkie Bibs than any other pattern these days! Most think it is too small. Yes and no! My mistake is calling it a bib  -- and for a bib, it is probably too small. It is actually a Binkie holder (that name is not as cute as Binkie Bib! cute   ---- Binkie Holder! huh?) So I called it Binkie Bib but it is actually a binkie holder.  Sorry!

It looks pretty good, if I say so myself!

Okay, I can't believe I did this -- against my better judgement -- but I recovered a sofa! Who would do this? 
But this particular sofa was in very good condition, a Flexsteel, so good bones! So why not give it a try. The initial fabric was awful (though I didn't think so when I picked it out years ago) but I love the new fabric. Very edgy! and why not?
And though there are some gimpy spots, overall, I think it turned out pretty well. I made it easy on myself and left off the piping and the skirt. I think it actually makes the sofa looks more modern!!

I need to make these -- today!!

So I am feeling a bit sleepy and would love to crawl in bed and watch movies. Maybe that's because we have cloudy skies today here in Oregon. It's suppose to rain and since we haven't seen much rain in MONTHS, I am so glad it is overcast and I hope it RAINS! Please rain, we are so dry!
Meanwhile, I love overcast days --- they make me want to cuddle up!! And this pillow case is great for that -- very decorator style! and has a pocket for holding stuff, like remotes! It's perfect.  P146 Heads Above the Rest!
