Birthentines? Yep. Today is Valentines Day but it's also my hubby's birthday!
For breakfast I got up early and made some chocolate chip, heart shaped pancakes with raspberry syrup. Yum. The boys got strawberry-banana smoothies too. And sitting next to their plates were these cute owls!
I got the pattern at Just Another Hang Up and whipped them up late last night. The pattern was super fun and easy. I had a few minor issues(of my own making) though. Like the fact that I can't find the box I packed my interfacing in. So I sewed them without it. They're a bit floppy. I ended up topstitching around them in hopes that it would give them a bit more standy-uppy-ness. And my machine was having issues. So I stopped in the middle and my amazing hubby cleaned and oiled it for me. It's still having issues. Sigh. Someday I'll have one of those cool, fancy-schmancy machines. Until then, I'll keep plugging on. :)
Now I'm off to make lasagna for DH's birthday dinner!
Thanks for stopping by!
