My Sister

Is incredibly talented.  She would never toot her own horn this way but I'll do it for her, because that's what sisters are for :)  She's got a Midas touch (what?  you don't study Greek mythology?) i.e. everything she touches turns to gold.

She makes and gives the best gifts.  For a year (or longer) I've been bugging her to make me some dishtowels and a table runner.  I thought my constant pleas were falling on deaf ears until I opened this on Christmas.

(squeal, pinwheels in my kitchen colors!)

(gasp, it's reversible!)

(i know, she's got a thing for picking out rockin' fabrics)

(the boys have been told they cannot use these towels for anything...anything...doesn't everyone have decor towels?)

As if that weren't enough, my parents got me my very own kindle (still "the best gift ever" according to Mr. Cook).  After a weekend get away to the mountains before heading into my student teaching semester, I realized that my kindle was very chilly without a cover.  Maybe it had something to do with the conditions...

But I'll take it as a reason to support the seamstress behind knitty bitties any day.

And while sometimes it's rough to have a sister so talented (eh hem, comparison issues) most of the time it's pretty awesome!

Uhm if you aren't the best little sister ... hey, make that the best sister a girl could ask for ;).

I love making you things and I'm so happy that we're in similar 'seasons of life' now that you can get all excited about 'house' stuff ;).

Don't compare ... you were made brilliantly to be you and are filled with all sorts of talent and mucho gusto that I don't have one bit of!

Love ya!

So sweet! I agree - she is the best. I need to photograph my table runner, or she might come over here & take it back! Eep! :)

Love yours - it's sooo cute! xoxo

Eh. She's okay.


Of course I love all your Knitty Bitties goodies. Love the colors on both things! I think I need a Kindle just so I can have one of those covers.

(I'm glad you blogged again. I've missed seeing new posts pop up here!)

I may be somewhat prejudiced - but I think you are both the BEST - and did it without me knowing a thing about being a parent:) Tho sometimes I wish you didn't get along so well - when you are 'picking' on me:) I am so very blessed - and I thank God every day for you.

Ohhh... I love all of those items! The colors on the table runner are gorgeous and I think your Kindle will be nice and cozy in it's new sleeping bag :) Thanks for posting and it was great to see you tonight!

I have to agree with you; when I saw the bag Andrea made for her netbook I was super impressed. It was fun meeting you at craft night! Nice blog. :)
