I hope you're enjoying the weekend. I sure am. I've spent a lot of time exploring other blogs and learning new tricks and tips!
Yesterday I made an "ice cream cozy" for one of my new daughters. She loves her ice cream and likes to eat it from those individual containers.The problem is, they freeze your hands! I took a Starbucks cardboard sleeve I had on hand,opened it up and used that as a guide for the basic shape and curve. I actually needed my pattern to be larger than the standard coffee cup holder. I used a Michael Miller fabric for the outside and pink flannel for the inside. I think it turned out cute.

This was a really quick project and I'll probably make one for my son out of a super hero fabric. I'm sure he'll like that.
My son in New York is finally experiencing a NY winter. Last year he brought California with him and it hardly snowed. Here's a few pictures he sent me via text yesterday...

On a sunnier note, we took a stroll to the Harbor last week. Dana Point Harbor. It was such a nice afternoon. Perfect weather and lots of entertainment from the pelicans. I've got a video of these crazy birds but not sure if I can load it. As we stood at the rail, they would sit on a boat and wait... all of a sudden they'd take off in the air, do a circle and just drop into the water to get the fish! It was hilarious. Many times it looked as if they were flying straight at us, only to dive down with a plop directly in front, into the shallow water. Here's a few pictures.
