The baby rattles from Fat Quarter Baby: 20 Crib Quilts for Bundles of Joy! are put together. I have a quilt design from Hari Walner’s Continuous-Line Quilting Designs picked out for the pink rattles. I’ll see about making a continuous-line design from the foxes in the blue rattles.
I follow the blog of Tierney Hogan and purchased one of her miniature Kimonos from her Etsy shop. So adorable.
I also purchased two prints from http://www.stewardART.com. Here’s what I said in Facebook about it.
I’m the owner of two stewardart prints: Emily’s “Loki” and Ian’s “Wonder Woman”! Thanks to these two people for sharing their talent. Laura and I love Emily’s detailed work. Ian’s Wonder Woman got a “Wow! That really looks like her (Lynda Carter)” from Mike.
Back in the 1970s my friends and I played many different TV shows like Big Valley and Bonanza, Charlie’s Angels and Bionic Woman, and our beaus while playing these were the guys from Starsky and Hutch or The Hardy Boys. We did a lot of mixing of shows.
One time though, I was playing Wonder Woman by myself. Dad had a second job on the weekends remodeling homes. This one particular time his boss from the second job was on vacation and left the van with us so Dad could use it. My Dad, being the trusting sort, let me play in the van. I was having a great time “driving” the van and chasing bad guys. I’d do the Wonder Woman spin and pretend to lift the back of the van. After stopping bullets with my golden cuffs, I caught my dad spying on me from the corner of the house. He had a big grin on his face. I. was. embarrassed.
Really, it’s not so much the memory of playing Wonder Woman, but that my dad took joy is seeing his daughter happy and using her imagination.
My oldest child Chris was over Tuesday to do laundry and visit. He’s moving to a new apartment on Saturday. I’m so glad. The one he’s in now is icky. Lately, he’s been driving 30 miles to do his laundry because the machines where he’s living give the clothes a funky smell. After all, he’s recently been smitten by a young woman and doesn’t want to smell funky.
Here’s my babies each texting their sweethearts. They grow up fast!
