So I scoured GW and found a white sweater that I thought would work. I paid $5 for the sweater
and I purchased an XXL so that I could make a bigger pillow.
I also made some soft gold pillows for some added warmth. I found this really soft corduroy fabric at a fabric outlet I like. It was 9.95 a yard but.... I had a 60% off coupon to use.
Then I bought some goose down pillows to put inside. They were only 6.50 a piece at this same fabric outlet ............ and that was for the 18x18 size!
I paired it up with the pillows I made earlier this year. They have more of a summery look so I wanted these to be more warm and cozy looking.
Well my friends, we are supposed to be getting nasty weather today. Right now they're predicting freezing rain.
I would much rather have snow. The freezing rain is just the worse to drive on.
On Thanksgiving we are off to my brother Matt's home. He has a large, very nice heated garage that works for our big family. They set up lots of tables, have a huge buffet table plus we can go in and out of his large home as needed.
Since we have such a large extended family, it's the only place we can fit! At Christmas we all go to a water-park and rent a motel or condo. The kids like it and so do the adults. Wisconsin Dells which is the Water-park Capital of the World is just down the road from us.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I have so much to be thankful for and I am hoping you all do too!
