Good Stuff!!!

I have days to catch up on! Last weekend started out GREAT! Miss V and I both had Friday off so we spent it together doing things we both love.
We started with coffee at our favorite coffee house..........
mmmmmmmmmmmm muffins too! Then we went to a local antique mall, unfortunately I was so busy looking and wishing and such that I totally forgot to take pictures!

I had to work Saturday during the day and the big guy had to work during the evening so we exhanged Valentines early. He went on to Amazon and got me the quilt book I have been desiring for YEARS!!!!!!!!!!! Yes!!!! Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking!! Is he good or what? I've checked it out from the library so often I don't know why they don't just put my name on it, but now they don't have to!!! It's MINE MINE MINE!!! ALL MINE!!!
Next the big guy started on my design wall!!!! I didn't even have to bribe him with anything! There does happen to be another homemade apple pie in the freezer though...
Here he is with the initial cuts, shhhh don't tell him I published this shot, he is a bit sensitive about that area on his head...... I sort of think it looks like a heart from this angle, but then I love the guy. ;-)

Next the "wall" goes up..........
Then on Sunday we glued the polyester batting to it.
What else is that stuff good for anyway??




And here we have it in use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah! I'm so excited, you just cannot imagine!!!!!!!!!!!
It's so nice and BIG!!! I will have to keep the stool next to it all the time.

I am so jealous, I am positively GREEN! A whole wall! My goodness, you are blessed. It is beautiful!

Funny thing, my husband has the same heart on top of his head, too. I think it means their heads are full of love for us! Again, more blessings....

I am SO jealous! I would love to have a *built* in design wall but at least Keith is very tolerant of me keeping the portable one sitting in the hall at the top of the stairs!

I love my Liberated Quilting book and bought it years ago before it was out of print and everyone started trying to find them. What a great gift!
