Today I am thankful for my family, especially healthy babies, modern medicine, and my sister-in-law's delicious chocolate pie.
Speaking of babies ... remember how I just had one? Without further ado, I'd like to introduce Cora Margaret:
Cora is such a peaceful, sweet baby. We just love her! I was so worried about Ruby (a.k.a. "the brute") using her muscles on the baby, but so far it is just hugs and kisses all around. Oscar, of course, is smitten as well (it probably helps that she looks just like him).
We had a few hiccups in the hospital, so it has taken me longer to get back to the computer. Between needing to recover and the holidays coming up, posting is going to be really light around here for the foreseeable future. But can you blame me? We are all super busy snuggling Cora.
For Thanksgiving, I crocheted Cora a silly turkey drumstick hat:
Funny, right? After seeing it on Pinterest, I just couldn't resist! I made up the the pattern as I went along and didn't write it down, so I don't have instructions to share with you. You might be able to find a crochet turkey leg pattern online, and just add it to a simple hat. After the holiday, I think I might take the drumsticks off and add some teddy bear ears for a more useful everyday hat.
At first it seemed like Cora really liked it:
But then she started making sour faces at me:
One-week-olds are so fickle. :)
In completely unrelated news ...
I have a Black Friday Deal to share with all you Silhouette fans. Silhouette is having a great Black Friday sale where everything in the online store (except the CAMEO, subscriptions, download cards, and gift cards) is 30% off. You can get an extra 10% off using the online code, JILL, for a total of 40% off!
Also, the CAMEO will not be found in the regular online store, but you can find it on the "secret" Black Friday Page. The Cameo is not 30% off, and my extra code will not apply, but it will be nicely discounted. The Black Friday Cameos are expected to sell out fast.
All shapes will be 50% off.
The Black Friday sale starts at 12:01 a.m. (MST) on Friday, November 25th. Codes will be valid through the 28th.
