Fail #1, this baby quilt. It just screams *I'm ugly!!* to me. I bought waaaay too much of the center fabric to make a baby quilt out of it and it is really hard to work with. I think I'll back this with the rest of it just to get rid of it. I had a friend tell me that she likes the quilt but I think she was just being nice lol!!
So that brings me to a question, could/would you give away an ugly quilt and not feel guilty? What if the recipient hated it?
Fail #2, and this cracks me right up. When we were in Seattle, ds#4 got a stuffie. Well ds#3 wanted one but we didn't go near a store again that had the kind of stuffie that he wanted(Webkinz anyone? lol) Yesterday, Jim took me out for a small drive(cabin fever had been REALLY setting in). We ended up near a store that sells Webkinz. Jim thought it was best for us to wait until #3 came home from school than take him so he could pick one out. I wanted to get him one and surprise him. I picked one out(I think it's adorable!) and brought it home.
Ds didn't have the greatest day at school and was not thrilled about his Webkin. I figured give him some time to settle down from the school day and he would feel differently. Instead, I go to go to bed last night and on my side of the bed is the bag with the Webkin inside and a note on top that reads *I don't like camels*. I'm still laughing.
And as a side note, #3 picked out a cocker spaniel Webkin this afternoon ;?
