Books, yarn, and sewing FOs

I very much needed to relax over Thanksgiving break. I was so happy to have time to do things for myself! DJ, my sister, and I went shopping on Black Friday and got some fantastic deals! I was able to find everything I set out to! Even though I went shopping, I still plan to give out some hand made Christmas gifts this year, and actually I have gotten quite a few completed.

My birthday is coming up this Thursday, so I thought I would treat myself to a couple of books I have been wanting.

I have also been wanting to make myself a couple of berets, so DJ bought me some yarn to do that (the reddish) and I bought myself the cream colored yarn.

And finally a few Christams gifts! These are for my three cousins. They are obsessed with the movie Cars. They are also (hopefully) getting a new playroom at their house, so I thought I would make some pillows to go in it. DJ's momma helped me. The front is the Cars fabric while the back is just plain black. Then she got the idea to make little zippered pouches with the leftovers. She's so creative! ^_^ There is one last square of fabric left that I thought we could frame and hang on the playroom wall.

P.S. I noticed that I spelled reddish like raddish, but I think it's funny so I will just leave it. ^_^

I haven't read any of the Stephenie Meyer books, but I have them on my list! Those car pillows are fantastic, they'll love them! I think it's a great idea to frame the fabric. That is very cool Cars fabric.
