Warm Winter Flannel

That’s right.  I am in the midst of making everyone warm winter jammies in the midst of a freaking warm spell.  It’s been in the mid seventies for days now, and it isn’t going to get much cooler for awhile.  See what I meant about how you can’t predict the winter based on fall’s weather?  A week or so ago we were getting hard frost.

This is probably due to the fact that we just had a gigantic propane tank installed for the fireplace so we could be all cozy for school and for reading and knitting in the mornings and evenings. Now we’re just sweating in there, and the propane hasn’t been turned on once yet.

Of course, if I had my way the fireplace would be wood – burning……but you can’t win ’em all.

I pretty much just fudged my way through it.  The fabric is “Nordica” flannel by Robert Kaufman.

She’s been pretty much living in it non – stop since I made it.  I think I may have to make her a whole week’s worth of them.  Especially as it goes rather well with a snappy pair of red cowboy boots when you’re sweepin’ the front porch.
