New Bedroom

Before we moved into this home we wandered through a big furniture store one day to let the kids dream about what their bedrooms would look like. Logan found a bedroom set he loved. We've been here 2 1/2 years now and he has been very patient, only saying something about it every few months. Well Todd being the handy guy he is decided it was time to build. Once he decides this there is no stopping until the project is finished. (I love that) So Logan helped him and this is what they created. The great thing was we had all this wood from a previous project. We will paint it when the weather is warm outside...most likely chocolate brown. Logan was one happy boy, even his little brothers have been sleeping on the floor of his bedroom because they are so excited for him!!

Goodbye Christmas Hello LOVE

Today I put away the Christmas quilt that has been living on our couch because....I finished the Valentine's Day quilt. This quilt is my creation and I think it turned out nice. The back I pieced which a first for me. I know the kids will love the brown velvet on the back.

Valentines Quilt

This is a quilt my friend Darlene did with the leftover fabric from her first valentines quilt. I quilted it for her. I have stippled far more quilts than I thought I ever would and am hoping to make the investment in a long arm machine. We'll see. Anyway I thought the denim looked great with it. I saved denim for years and then threw it all out when we moved 2 years ago. I think I am inspired to start saving it again...or she says she has plenty to go around so maybe I'll just use hers!
