this online and thought it looked like fun. Last fall, we tried to melt his old crayons into new crayons. But, er, I decided there was enough wax in the crayons and didn't spray the muffin tins and it was a gigantic failure. And a terrible mess. We were much happier with the result this time around.

I tested out my new bike today. I'm in love. It needs a name. I went with J. (I love him too!) I learned 2 important things-- there is still a whole lot of snow on the roads, let alone the bike lanes/trails. 2. There are a whole lot of hills nearby... guess that's what happens when your house is built in a ravine. 2.5 my legs are quite jello-ee. That's all. Happy weekend everyone!

Lesson Learned: When sketching (or at least my version of sketching) a design, don't use solid colors to designate polka dots! Your picture and the actual quilt will turn out much differently. The design would have been more apparent had I used green squares instead of white, or if the polka dots were denser. Oh well.
Favorite Part: The back is fun--the chevron quilting is apparent, and its green! Which means it can be dragged around on the grass and any grass stains will "go."
Photo Thoughts: Don't take photos at dusk before a huge snowstorm. The colors will be distorted and your quilt will look, well, a bit funny. :)
