Design Stuff Monday

All things considered, it was a productive weekend.  MOTU got back from his 2-week long roadtrip around 4 AM on Sunday morning, which meant I had a few extra hours in the name of "waiting up until my man gets home" to do stuff besides clean.  Here's the rundown:

 Hooray eBay!  I got a whole slew of vintage buttons to make flowers if someone would kindly buy one of my etsy listings, I can use them!  I'm debating learning to make button bouquets after the wedding, since those seem to be what's hot right now.  Ick, but it if it's your thing, it's your thing.

 The successful crayon project.  Kaleidoscope mini-muffin crayons.  They're pretty, but I'm not sure what I'll do with them since it seems crayons are a discouraged item to have in close proximity to the linens at the wedding.  Hum.
 The unsuccessful crayon project.  This went as you'd expect...the whole thing is a giant red glob and isn't nearly as pretty as I'd hoped. Let's not speak of this ever again.
 A finish! Ish! This is the top for Mai's quilt.  I even got it quilted this weekend!  All I need now is to trim the borders and put on some binding, and that baby's ready to go off to college! (Mai, if you're reading this, sorry to ruin the surprise...)

The pink quilt (which I'm calling "Valentine's Day Blues", putting a blue flannel pieced backing on, and selling on etsy as soon as it's done) is still up on the wall.
 Kini seems to think this bed is hers now.  My mom made me this quilt a few years ago when I was redecorating after a particularly nasty breakup.  She's awesome like that.  Whipped this up inside a week.  My mom rocks.
 Shelby has been getting ever more adventurous - this was last night, the windows from the kitchen to the screened-in porch.
And this was when I was eating pizza in the living room.  No joke. There's a shelf behind that door, and she just spies on me from there, thinking she's all sneaky. It makes me giggle every time.

And, rounding out the critter cam, Grisgris has found his place in my sewing room.  Right now, 2 of the 3 are passed out within arm's reach.  Life is good.  :-)
