A delightful afternoon

The other day I had a lovely afternoon. The kids swam (see previous post) and then played while I cleaned my house. Then I let William and Gracie watch a movie in their room while the caterer for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary came over to let me sample some cup cakes (such an inconvenience;).
 They were very yummy and I was/am very relieved that we found an affordable caterer so I don't need to worry about food, decorations is enough for me. Speaking of decorations I made these yarned pots. Is yarned a word? Probably not, but anyway...
I was going to take pictures of me making one so you would know how to do it too.

This is as far as I got before I got distracted by extreme cuteness. 

This kid loves a big ball of yarn.

Oh my goodness I want to eat him up! In fact I will...right now. 

Okay I am back, it was delicious. Now these pictures...I love them.

Uh oh he threw it too far, now what is he going to do?

One hand down and reeeeeach.

Get fingers threw a couple strands of yarn.

Pull it on back. 
I thought he was going to cry, looks like someone is getting more independent. Awesome. But I am not ready for mobility yet. Give me a few months boy.

The next thing I knew, I was done. So I use hot glue and the yarn around the base. Once that is in place I just wrap. I used more glue when I got to the rim where it gets bigger and then on the top. I really like how they turned out. What else can I yarn? A vase? A lamp? Gracie's legs? Okay no, but it really is pretty and easy. I sure hope all my ideas for the 50th come together nicely. We shall see.


  1. Oh my gosh I miss him I miss him I miss him.

  2. He is so stinkin cute and chubby in the best way! And I know the 50th anniversary is going to be incredible. Everything you do is amazing, Debbie. have I not compared you Alice enough? Wow, Twilight reference, where did you come from? At any rate, the pots and Joseph are very cute.

  3. How could you NOT get distracted by that amount of cuteness?!
