My family drives me crazy!

Yes, this was my family's idea of a joke! I bought this quilt rod/shelf with some money my mom gave me. It finally came in (I had to order it) and bugged my husband to hang it up. I come home Monday night to find it on the wall but "visitors" sitting on it! And just to remind you - my kids are all teenagers - they aren't even youngsters! But the favorite stuffed animals still are out and visiting all the time! As you can see Pooh is the favorite!

And speaking of Pooh - when I read Evelyn's post about the blankie wash for little boy it made me remember the times we had to wash Pooh Bear. Oh it was so traumatic. Adam would cry and cling to poor Pooh. Until finally we thought up the idea that Pooh wasn't being washed - he was going on a water ride like at the amusement park - well then that made it all fun! Thank goodness!

And just to put a quilt in here today since I'm in a dry spell for having time to quilt, this is one of my most favorite little quilts I hang up. It was made by my quilt buddy Lynn for a silent auction at our quilt show about 3 years ago. I wanted it so bad. She kept saying it wasn't anything special and she hand quilted it fast and little. But I wanted it! Needless to say I watched the bid sheet and won it! There is something about it that just draws me in! So since Patti and Kathie are on little quilt kicks right now I thought I would share my favorite one! But I have to say I really want that poison green star quilt Kathie showed - and then to find out Patti had one Jo Morton made of it - oh to die for!

Why Dawn, they all look right at home up there! :-)

Aren't kids wonderful?

Patti said...

Hey Dawn - thanks for putting a link to my blog on your side bar - I just now noticed it! What a sweet thing for you to do!

Well pooh looks like he fits right in! Both quilts are great. I have made some small ones recently but didn't really know what to do with them. Kathie's post has me thinking...

Your kids have a great sense of humour. You'll have to make Pooh some teeny tiny quilts of his own to cuddle on that shelf :-) Wonder if your kids will notice that LOL.

The poohs look very at home on your shelf, and obviously humor is alive and well at your house..LOL

Great little quilt, I can see why you like it so much, and I agree, the poison green one is to die for, but PLEASE DON'T!!! Hugs, Finn

Great new quilt display rack. Very fun. I like the Poohs and Tigger too. Sorry you're still getting so little fun time :(

You've been so busy since I've had a chance to check your blog! I love the quilts you've shown, and the word cloud is too funny. I might have to try that too!

I love your quiltrack. I have one too. A friend of me made it after I showed a picture from a book. I never have seen them here in the netherlands
