The boy is going to have to have a yard sale when he is a teenager to get rid of all the quilts his great granny made him!
It is a darling pattern called Animal Whimsy. Here is a pic of it.
I quilted it simply with some animal sounds and some animal names. Wish I had thought of it sooner so I could have planned it out better. I got all confused when I couldn't figure out what sound a rabbit makes, and I wasn't sure what horses say either. I thought it was "neigh" but that looked funny, and "nay" looked like "hay".
I should have made the rooster because I could have put "cock-a-doodle-doo", but what does the hen say? Maybe "cluck-cluck" -- or isn't that the duck. No, the duck says "quack".
Or the pig. I could have put "oink".
Or the donkey. I could have put "hee haw".
Or the sheep. I could have put "baa baa".
Does anyone know what a goat says?
Anyway, Luke isn't going to care, and I bet in a few years he will know what sound ALL those animals make, and he can teach it to his Great Granny Joy.
But for now, here is the quilt I made for his portable crib. It matches absolutely NOTHING in the room it is in, but I don't care. I hope he drags it all over the place and wears it out.
Thank you all for your nice comments when you saw this quilt on my VLOG here:
I know other Bloggers and Vloggers feel the same way, because they say they do, about how much your kind comments brighten our days.
And thank you again so very much for those of you who send my Mom mail. She is always so excited that someone sent her something -- anything -- because it makes her feel remembered and cared about. She is to the point she can't understand what is written or why the card came, but she is always happy that something came to her in the mail, and we always make sure she reads the cards, or we read them to her.
My new baby Luke will arrive here on Friday. He already thinks his Great Grandma's face is a pink rectangle with a hole at the top. His Daddy just got used to it, and he and his siblings always posed and smiled and said, "I love my Grandma!" on command. (Instead of "cheese".) They were the light of my life when they were growing up.
Jerry and I did Valentine's today.
We had to go to Best Buy to buy a new monitor for one of our employees. While there, I wandered around a little and something caught my eye. Fortunately, I could use Valentine's Day for an excuse, and Jerry was his usual generous, sweet self, and told me I could have it.
I took a pic for you:
It is a lap desk that has a mouse pad and a place for my phone. I had to get a wireless mouse to go with it, of course. I am really enjoying it right now as Jerry lays beside me watching the Thunder play.
After that, we went to Red Lobster where I had a $32 lobster dinner. I told Jerry it was too expensive, and he said, "Get what you want!" So I did. Jerry had a $30 dinner with crab legs. So very good! Then we bought groceries until we were both worn out. It is always so good to be back home.
Be back soon my friends. God bless you and your valentine.
