Post #5 – I Love Thursday
Here are a couple of my loves from recent memory. Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color posts a celebration all of her ‘likes’ for the week on Thursday on her blog. Maybe you’d like to join us, and link up with Lee Anna? There is always room for more people sharing their likes. Check on some of her likes and those of our friends – they will make you ~smile~.
Thinking about how to design nautical pillow shams. A friend asked if we could make her a set of pillow shams? Umm, yes, but you need to be a tiny bit more specific. AND, I cannot even think about it until the commissioned quilt is complete. So, of course I’ve been thinking of nothing else . . . I wonder what colors she would like, how big, what pattern would look best. My suggestion was for her to draw what she envisions – that way we’re on the same page. Ooh, this will be fun! Here is what she is replacing:
They are shells, and not very nautical which is why she would like to replace them. I cut off the stunning photo she has hanging above her bed (I know – now you want to see it). Not that I’ve spent any time studying this photo or anything, but I think she has a queen size bed and I think they should be the envelope-type of shams so she can easily wash them if she wants. Or with a zipper . . .
I just finished The Fix by David Baldacci in his series about Amos Decker. It was SO good to the very end – one of those ‘where is it going’ and ‘how are they going to wrap this up’ book. Now I’m going to start the The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. It is not my usual mystery/lawyer genres but it is very good! Almost why-am-I-working-good as I just want to read! FYI – they are releasing, or have already, a movie based on this book. I also have Addicted to Scraps by Bonnie Hunter checked out from the library. We certainly have enough scraps to do something fun with them soon. Speaking of reading, here is someone sharing his predication skills when hearing a Franklin story by Sue (I just couldn’t resist):
The ideas that other bloggers share are just so darn inspiring! LeeAnna made the cutest pumpkin pin cushion (check out her link above – really easy she says!) that I need to make. And then the Easy Peasy Drawstring Bag tutorial was shared by two people sharing their version of the bag – again very easy, as the name suggests. I don’t even carry a purse – never have – but I feel like I NEED this bag. ~smile~
HA – I cannot miss a week of Mr. Two Months old now! Seriously . . . I know y’all are just reading to see the latest, cutest picture. He was visiting on Saturday and going to his first Halloween party, so we had to whip up a costume. Without further adieu, no words needed:
That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoy these posts – the loves aren’t all related to quilting so they are off-topic. And sometimes I feel like I’m sharing too much . . . but it is who we are. Truth. ~smile~
