#1: I swear if I see Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson jump on someone else's band wagon one more time, I'll scream! They are the biggest media whores I've ever witnessed and they turn my stomach. Joe Jackson doesn't do a lot for me either.
#2: I hope Michael Jackson's children (who look so adorable, and so normal) stand a decent chance of growing up outside of the crazy media frenzy that will follow them the rest of their lives. But I doubt it will happen.
# 3: I love Michael's music, I will always love his music, and I swear if they play his songs at my funeral I'll crawl out of my casket and dance.
Eccentric or not that man was a musical genius.
Ok, on to fabric.
As soon as I got the call from the cleaning company that they were hiring me, I jumped on line and started looking for the appropriately themed fabric (I love the internet!!!).
I wanted Wash Day (I think it's a Michael Miller print but I can't be sure) , and of course it's no longer available. It was on EBay however, but it was something like $22.00 a yard.
I don't think so!!!
But I found this instead and I like it a lot more and for two yards plus shipping it came to around $20.00.
I can handle that.
Isn't is too stinking cute?
Wash tubs, scrubbing boards, clothes pins, hangers, bubbles.... it goes on and on.
I plan on making a tote bag or back pack or both I'm just not sure, but I have it sitting out where I look at it daily and wait for inspiration to hit.
I wish inspiration would hurry up.
Hans gave me a stuffed lion for our first anniversary (he's a Leo) and our collection has grown over the years. We also have a teddy bear, a moose, and a beaver amongst our menagerie.
They're placed on our bed every morning with orders to guard the place but I don't think they look very threatening.
Actually I wanted to take a picture of the quilt that Hans' late step mother made many years ago. It was one of those printed cross stitch bedspreads, not counted cross stitch.
However there is a tremendous amount of work in this cover and after it was done, it was quilted by hand, not machine.
We found it in storage when Hans moved into the apartment and it covers our king size bed.
I believe in using things and I'm sure his step mother would be glad it's being used.
Hans mother passed away when he was 19 and and when his father remarried he became very close to his dad's new wife. He can't say enough nice things about either lady, and that's probably why Hans is such a nice person.
Here is Chlorox joining the party.
Isn't she one pretty kitty?
