Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Good ideas and need opinions :)

I was reading over at ~Quilting with Ragdolls~ and loved reading about her bulletin board. Which reminded me about an idea I got from a magazine too! Here is a pic

You can iron and hang your strips or fabric on it and it wont wrinkle again OR the cat wont lay on it and get hair all over it...which happened HERE

Do you think its too busy? The hubby thinks a nice plain white (ick) or blue (its for a girl baby) would do better. So whatcha think?

Hello,
I just found your blog though a comment on Patty's blog. What about a picking up the purple or green in the rainbow and hearts? It's a cute quilt!

I think Kelli's above suggestion is a good one..but if buying more fabric would be an issue, I'd say use the rainbow strip. It echoes the rainbow by the bears, and it's happy and bright...both of which babies love.

And if you are worried about the whole thing..repeat after me "it for a BABY"...not a critic..a baby!!"...Hugs, Finn

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I love the idea of the clothes drying rack for hanging pressed quilting blocks.
Use the rainbow fabric, it reminds us all about Gods promises ! And you have it already.

You have a lovely family. The Lord bless you and always remind yourself of what you have and not of what you don't have : )
