Today started out with a few rounds of me dancing through the house singing "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" after three straight weeks of general life disruption due to real and school vacations culminated in that glorious moment when everyone returned to work and school and left me with a quiet home for the morning. All that was missing in my Staples commercial reinactment was the shopping cart.
We had a fabulous few weeks and a great vacation to DC (travelogue to follow), but I'm raring to accomplish stuff again.
I'd have loved to get right into writing this blog post, but sadly Blogspot had decided in my absence to go all FB rogue on me and changed my layout, fonts, colors, etc when I wasn't looking. Really, Blogspot? Are you trying to live up the the initials I could give you, which would be BS? Anyway, I have no idea what the heck happened but I think I have it mostly back to normal after a quick 20 minute session of swearing at the website. The only thing I don't know how to fix is the red post titles, but maybe we can all just get used to them.
So I know you are all dying to know what I did during Endless Spring Break 2012. The big excitement was our trip to Virginia and DC, and if you read my previous post you already know the actual car ride with three youngish children went about as could be expected. Needless to say, it wasn't always this joyous.
To be honest, that there was probably the only moment there was no fighting, so thank God it was captured for all eternity. Overall we had a great time, though. Who knew quilt pattern inspiration might come from places such as the Governor's Palace at Colonial Williamsburg?
Or from some other random house there I forgot to note the name of?
I managed to stop myself from whipping out a tape measure, mainly because I do not travel with one, and sketching up a few design ideas, but I do love both of those as inspiration.
Speaking of inspiration, I plan to tape this one to the frige for dishwashing inspiration for P and E. Why is it so much fun to do dishes in the 1770s but not so much fun in 2012?
Eva found some jewel tones she'd like to see in a quilt at the Natural History Museum.
Greta and Paige would have helped me find some inspiration, but they were too busy being eaten by sharks and dinosaurs.
Once we returned and between playdates and girl scout activities and drama presentations and dance makeups and another mind blowing day trip to Wegmans I had to get some quilting done. I can't show the entire project, but here is a little fun I was having last week with prairie points, something I have never really used in designs before but I think I may use more frequently because I just had way too much fun.
Now, let's see what happens when I hit publish. Will Blogspot let the post look normal, or do they have other things in store?
It looks great! And I can't wait to see what you are going to do with those prairie points!!! Angie
