More Ordinary Days

I've been knitting more on this blanket. It's from an Ella Rae book called Rug Emporium. I think you could figure it our yourself with instructions for the cable. I think it looks very impressive but it's easy to knit. Trust me!
We've been napping a lot next to the radiators.

I cleaned up the china cabinet so I could fit in my new Christmas dishes.

The girls got into the down comforter that was on Hillary's bed. Feathers were flying. So I redecorated with what I have and I think it looks nice and neat. The comforter needs a patch but I don't think I'll trust them with it again. Yes that's a stuffed dog on the bed. A friend of theirs I think.

I made snickerdoodles yesterday. I should make cookies more often.

Hi B! That blanket is so pretty! I love cables. Those puppies are so cute and look quite comfy & cosy (stuffed one too ;). And who in the world doesn't love Snickerdoodles -- yum!
And I've been thinking about ordinary days lately (love that post title), and I remember ladies of my mother's generation living their 'ordinary days' so graciously -- no rushing around frantically to accomplish ridiculous amounts of 'stuff' every day, but just moving through daily life at a resonable & steady pace, caring for their homes and families and enjoying the company of friends. Sounds good to me.

your knitting projects are so beautiful. and the puppies look like they've chosen a perfectly comfortable spot. I love Gigi's rushing around/ reasonable and steady pace/ enjoying the company of friends. that sounds so good to me too!
