Come On Spring!

I don't know about you, but I am so ready for spring! With a few warm days to tease me, and the temperature dropping as I type this (not to mention the snow that is falling on my NJ friends right now), all I can think of lately is warmer weather. Playing outside, planting flowers, and wearing flip flops of course!

So getting ready for spring, I started a new backpack! Greens and blues! I did make this one a little bigger than the last one. Another difference is I quilted these fabrics together before I assembled it.

There is a zippered outer front pocket plus two inner pockets.

Plus a little tag to hang a pen between the two pockets.

Warm weather........I'm ready!

Deep In The Heart Of......Virginia?

One of our bathrooms got a little makeover a couple of weeks ago. It had random items. It is the "man cave" bathroom. My awesome cousin gave us her Texas themed bathroom items she no longer needed! YAY! When your hubs is a Texan, this makes us both happy!

But the walls were bare. It needed something. I had an old handkerchief that is the texas flag. It is about 11 x 14. I thought of putting that in a frame. So what I did was I found a frame that it would fit.

What I did to the flag was really simple! I cut a piece of foam poster board to fit the frame. I wanted the flag to puff out a bit so I placed polyester quilt batting on the poster board behind the flag. Then I hot glued the flag to the poster board. I was able to just hot glue the board to the frame. And came up with this:

Just what that room needed! It looks a thousand percent better!
