Big brother is going to be moving into his big boy bed any day now, so I realized I'd better get a move on with his quilt.
The whole thing has been kind of an experiment from the beginning.
Big surprise coming from me, I'm sure. ;)
Hopefully I'll be sharing the finished product soon!

Mother Nature, you're killing me here.
I've got two little boys with cabin fever.
And it's 40 degrees outside.
Oh for crying out loud.
Michael's $4 wooden dinosaurs to the rescue.
It was 45 minutes well spent.
A little messy.
But well spent.
Last time I got comments about paint on the dining room table.
I'll just say certain messes don't bother me. Like paint on the table.
Our house is meant to be lived in. And it is.
(When we paint inside we always use Crayola paints. They come off with just a baby wipe.)
Other messes, like chalk dust, would make me crazy.
At any rate, this was an enjoyable project.
But now the weather can feel free to get back to normal so we can get the heck outta here!

I completely winged (wung?) it on this one...no pattern, and only a vague memory of shirring.
This was a great little project. The fabric is from an upcycled sheet and the buttons are from my stash of new and vintage. Start to finish, I think it only took me an hour...if we ever have a little girl, she'll have a closet full of these!
Happy Monday, friends!

All the green that's starting to sprout up outside makes me want to get that springy feeling inside, too.
We even tried the preschool science favorite:
And lo and behold, we have some sprouts!
