Big brother T turned 14 the week before (hopefully his braces are coming off next month), so we've been busy transforming his room from 'little boy' to 'teen cave'. This involves about 1000 lbs of IKEA particle board. The good news is that he took on building all of his new furniture by himself, and we were able to donate his old stuff to the neighbour's little boy! At 5'10" we decided to just go for a queen sized bed, because I'm sure T will be taller than his Dad by summer. Honestly, he's growing before my very eyes. Don't even talk to me about shoes.
This blog will return to quilty/sewing action this week, I promise!!
Stuff has been happening behind the scenes even though you haven't seen any evidence of sewing here for ages. I've actually made a decent start on one of my private swaps (hand applique, even! Go me!), sorted out my colour scheme and chosen my block for the Quilting Divas Sampler Bee and organized my scraps into colour-coordinated clear drawers.
Now that Christmas, two birthdays and a teeny bit of tidying are complete, I'm ready for action! Stay tuned....
