SOME GOOD CUDDLE TIME

My DIl wanted a couple throw pillows covered, so we went to A&E to get fabric.  That's where we met Kim and Karen as I posted about before.  Here is one of the pillows before.


And here it is after.  Since the fabric was regular cotton, I used some interfacing to give it more stability and I think it helped a lot.  The back opening is velcro.  I like the way it turned out.


Abigail is definitely Grandpa's girl, but last night I got some good cuddles in.  We had our DIL and Abigail over to the camper for supper.  DS is working 4 days in a row - 12 hour shifts.  After we ate, she climbed in my lap for some good cuddling.  I was very happy and got DH to take a few pictures.  It was a very nice evening.

Only 3 more days here and then we go home.  It's good and bad.

The pillow looks great.
Isn't cuddle time just the best?? A great picture of you and Abigail.
I am sure you will enjoy being home again, but I am also sure it will be hard to leave.

I have a feeling Abigail is going to miss you two when you come home, but I'm sure the reverse will be true too. She's such a cutie! ---"Love"
