cool weather

We have a few of these little fleece blankets around here.
This one was a FREE gift for donating $$$.
It came in the mail to dear Motherinlaw...
and ended up at our house!
;)

It sat around here....
and ONE day...
someone here was chilly!!!
 
The robe wasn't staying on quite right.
She has a little disability..
and robes can be FIDDLY things!!!
 
I did a little cutting....
a little sewing....

Voila!!!
I invented a PONCHO!!
 
WHat???
They used these in ancient times???
 
Well....
It felt like an invention to ME!!!!
LOL!

  1. One of the best things about creating stuff is that we get to keep our loved ones warm and comfy. The totally newly invented poncho look very warm and snuggly. Great idea!

  2. That was a good idea. I actually need one for the evenings when I am sitting in bed and just need something to keep my shoulders warm.
