Doing Stuff

And I have been doing stuff...

The boys and I put away all their Christmas presents  - and the new snow boots fit just fine, with room to grow :0)  We sorted through their drawers in the mudroom, trying on hats, gloves, sunglasses, snow goggles, etc.  And we've culled out at least one laundry basket full of stuff to go to consignment or Goodwill.  (Working on that Equal Mass Law!)

And I washed all their sheets and remade the beds - not a simple task with flannel sheets, comforters and extra blankets on the bunks.  But January 1 is "rotation day".  Wyatt rotated off the top bunk, and 2010 is Tate's turn.  Yes, they still think the top bunk is a Big Deal.

And, yes, we have two sets of bunk beds, but only one is "bunked".  I've measured the space.  I could stack both sets, but I'd have to slide them toward the center and I think that would block a lot of light from the window.  And you know how I feel about that.

And I've been working on this.  That's just the top - it's not quilted yet.  Better pictures to come when it's finished.  I've been trying to find the right project for those plaids for at least two years.  I like it, but the plaids are a challenge.  They really show off every place my lines aren't straight, so I had to fuss a lot more with this than I like.  And it's still not straight.

Ahh... I love getting things organized! Not so much the process of getting organized, but actually having everything tidy at the end is pure bliss.

Love the new picture at the top of the blog! What a great one of all the boys.

Also, the quilt is lovely. The lines look straight to me! Plus, it is nice to have some charm built into it- it is made by hand and not something out of a factory. It's beautiful!

I remade bunk beds today too! It's a tough job! The boys room is gorgeous!

I think your quilt looks great! I agree with Leah. Even if there is a little bit of crooked to the lines it gives it charm -- and charm is beauty.

That quilt top is lovely. From where I'm sitting you can't see the crooked spots.
