Both the things I'm sharing here today are ideas I totally stole from other blogs. That's why we all do this, though, right? I hope? Anyway, my friend Jen and I have been wanting to make a quilt together. We met in Georgia, shortly before both our husbands left for Iraq and I am convinced it was a Providential friendship, right from the beginning. We now live in different states and since we so miss creating together, we try to find ways to have a long-distance-creativity relationship :) SO, without either of us mentioning it to the other, we both happened upon this post on Crazy Mom Quilts and both knew this would be the perfect quilt for us to make. It's called a Spider Web and you can see a pic of a finished one here and find the pattern here.
THEN, yesterday, I made the girls a felt board, since I had seen this post on Let's Explore and thought it was a total stroke of genius. It's kinda like a home made flannel graph. And, since I'm certainly not lacking for felt, when they get board with these pieces, I can simply make different ones! I'm thinking an alphabet next.
