IF we were to be vandals, we would do this to our Ute-fan friend's yard:

And we would expect this in return:

And we would have gotten this:

IF you were to do this, these are the supplies you need:
Note - it is nice to use Professional Marking Paint, designed just for grass! How very thoughtful of someone to think of that.

Be sure to discard your empties and used in a public garbage can.

Again, all hypothetical.

I finished up some projects this weekend - and boy doesn't that feel great! I made a turquoise colored pillow to liven up my yellow, brown and orange family room. I LOVE it. It is just the color the room needed. Now I have more to do!

I finished the binding on the first ever quilt I made (and finished two years ago, except the last 1 1/2 sides of the binding). Someone, who quilts all the time, told me that the colors were all wrong and it was ugly, but I made it and I like it. I didn't really know what I was doing, color and hue wise. Next time, I will do better, I hope!

My next quilt will be out of the fabrics above. Not that quilt pattern, but those fabrics. Yay me!

Speaking of fabric. I am in love with these by Tina Givens. I haven't bought any yet, but I visit almost every day.

I made Joseph a Panda bear from gloves. Too cute!

Like all five year olds, Matthew desperately wants an iPod. This morning he took matters into his own hands. He made himself an ipod. Right down to the earbuds. Good thing he is creative. I am not about to buy an iPod for a 5 year old! He keeps bringing me over the iPod to listen to my favorite songs on. He spins the center controller and everything. Little smarty.
When life hands you a broken furnace make pumpkin chocolate muffins! (the oven heats up the house - bonus!)
