ARGH! Blogger just ate my post.
Way back before we moved I bought a box of quilt pieces from another blogger. When I saw this piece in her photos I knew it had to be mine.
Except when it arrived this piece was HUGE and I had no clue what to do with it.
It took me several months of thrift store stalking to find a big enough frame (I swear it is 4 feet tall). Then when I was on bedrest Dave painted a piece of beadboard for the back and I hotglued the quilt piece in it.
It now FINALLY has a home above the sofa.
This morning I bought Martha's new Halloween mag in Costco.
I REALLY want to make these owls for the front door.
After kindergarten today Jack and I are going to buy Miss Thing her very own "dandy". (A.K.A. Security blanket). When I asked him if he wanted to pick it out he said sure, then followed it with:
"I don't think she will want yellow (the color of his dandy), I think she'll want pink."
The dandy was the very first thing I bought for Jack, so it's kind of a special day around here. :-) (No matter what color he chooses. I am kind of leaning towards green.)
