i heart glitter


as a part of "g" week around here, larkin and i made some glitter dough this afternoon. during the process, larkin referred to himself several times as "little chef". i have no idea where he got that, but i love it. i soon found out that he, too, loves glitter. can you really ever have enough? (especially in play dough)

i finished my little project. this was meant to be a quilt for lucy's dolls. i used a mix of new and vintage fabric (there is even an old shirt of mine and a napkin involved). however, i have fallen in love with it and can imagine it as a block in a quilt for lucy. i am torn about what to do. i desperately want to complete it, since it is so close (basted and all), but the idea of the big quilt keeps emerging. i know that it would be a time commitment for sure. any thoughts?

so sweet.. I realy love the patchwork and the blossom balloon.

Glittered playdough? I wonder if my 12 year old boy would still go for that?

I never thought of combining glitter with playdough...my daughter would love that...we'll try it!

Looks like some creative fun at your house! Never thought of adding glitter to playdough, I know some little girls that would love this idea, thanks for the inspiration.

I can relate to you wanting to take the little quilt project and make it into a large quilt... that's actually what happened with the quilt I made for my youngest son. It started out as a pieced block using a fabric he chose, that I had intended to make into bed toss cushions. However, feedback from my husband and son, persuaded me to make it into a quilt. I'm glad I did. Yes, it was more work (did I mention that the feature fabric only came in a small packet at Michaels? And that it was constantly out of stock?) Anyways, if you really want to, why don't you make this project into a larger quilt? What's the downside for you?

"little chef" was frequently used in "Ratatouille". Did Michael sneak to the movies with Larkin? btw, you totally inspired me and I started my own meaningless blog of nothing. Meanwhile, I love reading all about you and your fabulous projects!
