Giraffes and Elephants

Here is the raw idea for the next quilt for a new baby…

no circus items, a better palm tree, … still thinking…

New baby on the way! Victoria would like elephants and giraffes for the nursery.

90 lbs.

The question is, how many quilts can you make with 90 pounds of fabric?

The answer is,… good question!  It will take a while to find out.

Yes, believe it or not, my sister sent me home with 90 pounds of fabric!  Last summer when I visited her I bought an extra suitcase at Goodwill to bring home stuff.  Last month when I went to see her I took that extra suitcase because I figured I’d probably bring home more stuff.  Well, I brought home so much stuff I had to go to Goodwill and buy another suitcase! Then sissy gave me a carry-on, too!  Do you wonder what 90 pounds of fabric looks like?


How many Quilts?

I’ve been moving

Talk about hectic!  I have been moving, and thanks to the help of several great peolple I am alive to tell the story.

Nah, nothing dangerous, but very active compared to this lucky dog:

Technically the move is over, but in reality, who knows when things will be settled.  Hopefully before I move out. ha ha (pretty fun, don’t you think?)

One of the funniest scenes was when I asked one of the college-age movers, Is that about all the boxes?  He looked at me and grinned.  I ran outside to his buddy crying out, He laughed at me because I want that to be all the boxes.  The reassuring guy said, It’s almost all of them.

I’m sure they brought more than they loaded into the truck, but I can’t figure out how.  So when grinning-guy said, What are you going to do with all this? I replied, Live with it just like this; a life-time of boxes piled in the new cozy (euphemism for small) living room.  He said, you know, it makes you look like a hoarder.  You could make a show!

At least we had some laughs, and the job was done within the 2 hour minimum. $$$$

Moving isn’t really fun, but in this case, it is really done!
