I found this fabric set today. Isn't it fun!?! I would love to make something out of it. I just have to budget some money for it first. It would make a fun Christmas quilt or table runner or an apron. This is Michael Miller fabric (I found it on Etsy today).

This is also on my wishlist. I want to try making these. :) I found them here and several places online, but I don't want to pay shipping. So I think I will check around the fabric shops in Salisbury and see if anyone has them for sale in their shops.
My siblings and the Huntingtons have been working on this. It is going to be entertaining.

I received a present that Jared opened yesterday. I was cutting up vegetables in the kitchen and he came in and said, "if I promise to write three thank you notes may I open one more gift?" So I said yes. And he brought in this package that looked like a framed picture. I wasn't really paying attention because I didn't care that much about presents at that moment. I was trying out new kitchen stuff!! Jared couldn't figure out the card and so he came over and showed it to me. I couldn't figure it out either... maybe you can.

So we decided that maybe the present itself would hold some clues... So we opened the UGLY gold wrapping paper and it was a old bulletin board attached to a large think wrapped in a big white sheet. I still wasn't really paying attention and was sitting over at the counter thinking, "that is weird... I hope it is something that we will actually like...".

And than Jared opened it and showed it to me and I wanted to cry... This is a bad picture of the painting. But it is a huge canvas of Corduroy that my sister painted. Isn't it beautiful? I will try to get a better picture of it later once I hang it up in the living room. Sarah, you are amazing and I am so honored to receive one of your paintings!! Thank you so much!

Going to the gym makes me so hungry!

Also, I can't wait for everyone to see the yard. It looks so nice thanks to so many people. Thanks mostly to my wonderful family who spend hours and hours each day watering and weeding. Also thanks to Aunt Suzanne for coming over to water and weed and the Balls for bring mulch. It looks so lovely. It makes me feel so loved and happy!
