Cozy

P1010011p Feeling like a nap? Nothing beats snuggling up under layers of handmade afghans and resting your head on a squishy pillow! My sweet and uber talented friend Elizabeth made me the red and white afghan for my birthday last year – and she made it nice and long for me knowing that I am nearly six feet tall. I just love it! So soft….. So cozy…..Soooo warm! hmmm…I feel a nap coming on! How about you?

The red and white throw is beautiful! I made up the bed with fresh sheets this morning, all white and with extra pillows and a new white fluffy comforter. It all looks like a cloud, I can't wait to crawl in tonight!

That does look cozy and I love your pillows in the background. The scottie pillow is just adorable!! How is your quilt going Becky? I didn't think I would have time to make one right now. I did buy the magazine for the pattern and will be curious to see how you like it.

Jenna said...

Definitely took a nice long nap on the couch today, but not underneath a homemade blanket. Very sweet!

O.K. Becky I missed this Sat. The
black afghan looks a lot like the one I have of mom's. She made it
during the war out of wool all
colors of thread. It took her awhile because the thread was
hard to get during that time. I
love afghans, I've made a lot of
them. I love your red and white
one too.

If it's a gray day, there is nothing I want more than to snuggle under something warm and soft. Those afghans are calling me name!
