A Wonderful Weekend

I'm a southern girl at heart, so when the weather turns nasty I do what generations of strong women have done over the centuries: I stayed in my pajamas all day sewing and refusing to leave the house.

It was worth it, though, don't you think? I got the top of Orange Crush pieced. It is still busy, but beautiful. My daughter loves it, which is a good thing since it is going on her bed! Now I am auditioning borders, and I think I'm going to go with one of these:

I think I prefer the one on the right. What do you think? Let me know!

On a patriotic note, there are some great ideas for commemorating the Inauguration tomorrow with kids at The Crafty Crow.

Enjoy the rest of your 3-day weekend. I hope everyone is staying warm.


  1. Lime green is a favorite color, so I naturally prefer that color for your border. The top is gorgeous!

  2. How fun - it is colorful and energetic. I like the border on the righ as well.

  3. Jenny it does look stunning, well done you are nearly there.


  4. Jenny---HANDS DOWN! The green!
    a) it seems to fit your daughter
    b) it makes the green pop
    c) it just fits PERFECT on an "Orange Crush!")

    (and a secretive d) you have just been added to the rest of us who used a lime green!!!)
    here's mine....

    Thanks for sharing your blog addy! It's been fun reading through it :0)
    Happy Monday

  5. Wow! Just really wow! Love the lime green, really makes it pop. Can't wait to see it in person.

  6. Despite not generally being a pink person, I liked that border better, but ultimately: ask your daughter, she has to like it. ;^)


Thanks for joining the conversation!
