Seems like I've been reading lots of blogs that show women snuggled up under a quilt, with their dog, cat, and/or child, near a cozy fire. The Christmas decorations have been put away. Usually they're knitting. Maybe there's homemade soup on the stove. Sigh.
I, on the other hand, spend most of my day in front of a computer screen. Sure, I'm doing great stuff, but still. It'd be nice to have the cozy, too.
So lets just pretend that I have a puppy, that there's a fire in the fireplace, that I don't have a baby shower at my house this Saturday that'll happen in the midst of Christmas decorations that haven't been put away yet OH MY GOSH. Pretend that I'm not a control freak, who actually told the women planning the shower that they should use red and white decorations to match my Christmas decorations. Pretend that I'm calmly knitting or embroidering. Or something.
To inspire you, I will share my admittedly cozy Christmas moment pictures over the next few days. You can pretend that my life is like this all the time.
Let's begin with flannel. Nothing cozier than that, right?
Flannel with KITTENS.
I've had this munki munki fabric forever. It's some of the softest, fluffiest fabric I've every touched. As soon as the pants were done, I wanted to make MORE flannel pajama pants. I wanted to outfit the world in flannel pajama pants. I settled for one Arizona girl. The others got ebay-bought pajamas. All with a distincly orange theme, it turned out.
