Baby Ronnie pulled my mini laptop off the kitchen table earlier this week. At first there was a line running vertically down the screen and I thought the computer would be okay. But pretty soon, a quarter of my screen was lines, and then a few hours later, two thirds of the screen was obscured. It was time to say good-bye to my pretty pink laptop and hello to a new computer. My hubby ran out to Best Buy the next day and bought me a HUGE laptop. At first I was kind of sad it was so big and was going to return it and get another mini, but then he told me it might be better for blogging and reading blogs since the screen is so much bigger. Good thinking!!!
this beautiful version on the blog Cut to Pieces. I didn't even have time to Google how to make felt flowers so we just made it up as we went along. My roses didn't turn out as pretty as the roses on the original (mine were too tightly wrapped), but for a quick project to do with a three year old, they turned out good enough! I used some pinking shears to cut concentric circles and Esther glued the sparkly puff balls in the center of the flowers. I used my fall wreath form--just took the orange, brown and cream flowers off since they were only hooked on using alligator clips--and replaced them with these felt flowers and a Christmas-y ribbon. I'm already looking forward to doing something with hearts for Valentine's Day.
I am linking up to the Friday Night Sew In. I woke up this morning at 4:30 and sewed for two hours, almost piecing together all the rows of the Charmed Prints Quilt Along quilt. I just finished them up and added the borders and will post a pic tomorrow after I take a photo when the light is better.
