It's Wednesday and I have to share this picture of my messy dining room table:
James has declared himself the Decorator-in-Chief and wants to decorate the whole house for Halloween. I've always enjoyed decorating myself, but usually never bother because it makes a mess and I'll just have to take the decorations down later anyway.
My little boy is certainly changing my attitude! We're having fun making a mess together and I'm letting him do the arranging and placing, which lead to our very interesting mantle arrangement:
We're getting a new mantle clock this week so we've left space for that, but all the rest was pure James. Most especially the banana in the jack-o-lantern cup!
While I've been mostly supervising glitter containment, I have also enjoyed drawing with markers over fall themed shapes cut from accu quilt go dies. While coloring with James I started slipping in free motion filler designs and rather liked the effect:
This is a bit like zentangles, and a bit like free motion quilting at the same time. Super fun and a great way to practice new designs!
So I'm off to make more of a mess and figure out where we're going to put all our decorated cut outs. I'm thinking we'll make a poster and glue it all together with pictures of James in his different costumes over the years. Super cute!
Let's go quilt,
