This is the beautiful tree outside my entrance to class. This makes it all worth showing up every other day just to see how many leaves it's lost. I love fall in NC mountains. There's nothing like it.
This is my cousin Cookie, yes, that's her name. Stop laughing!! That's not nice. Her real name is Olivia. However, she somehow obtained the nick name Cookie as a baby and it has stuck with her all these years. If someone in the family were to call her Olivia, we'll all be like "who"? She is also very crafty and has just recently taken up sewing. She got herself a machine and came to guess who for lessons? Yep, you guessed it ME. She came up last week and I showed her several things, and then today she came back with sewing machine in hand. She knows how to travel huh? We live about an hour apart. Her mom is my dear favorite aunt I speak of often. I love those gals. We started sewing at 10am and sewed till 2pm. We sent TJ out for our lunch. Not a very good picture, but she made that pillow, she actually made two. I look forward to many sewing days with Cookie.
While helping her get started on her pillows, I made this Pooh baby blanket for a girl in my class. I'm almost certain she don't read my blog. I'll gift it to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it.
