More Swoon

More Swoon blocks (quilt pattern by Thimble Blossoms).

And here is something to keep your kids busy for HOURS!! Crayola Window Markers.
I have to say though that it sucks cleaning it up but it's so worth it. They love being able to draw on a new surface and stand in the kitchen window. The best thing to get it off with is one of those Magic Sponges. They tend to get hand prints all over the sill and wall next to the window so the Magic Sponges get that off. 
What's new:
Jon is on R&R and in the States visiting his mom.
Piggy, the kitty no one believes we have, has been missing for weeks now.
I had a dream last night that I found her.
Ava is fully potty trained and almost completely potty trained for nights (that is solely her doing not mine).

I love that last photo! Now do you get to see your husband too? Are you upset about the cat? I have dogs so I don't get cats - does this one come and go sometimes? So many questions!

Hi Heather! No we won't get to see Jon till next may/june. So one whole year of not seeing each other:( I do care the kitty is gone. I worry about her. She is so tiny and 10/11 yers old. She is not an outside cat but STRICTLY inside! I will admit it's nice haveing fewer cats. and I can't stop thinking about what my vet bill would be if she did return. She'd probably need shots and a check up and I would need to take her to the groomers because I know she'd be nasty. A long time ago one of my inside cats got out and another cat scratched him. It got infected really bad and the vet had to open, drain, stitch up and keep a tube in it to drain. So I know what can happen and what it will cost!

Those quilt blocks are gorgeous! The finished product is going to stand up to it's name.

Elora has some of those window markers too, and loves them, but I rarely remember to let her play with them. We let her stand on the counter in the bathroom and color on the big mirror.

So sorry about Piggy. I hope it works out. I gave my cat away to a new home about a month ago, and I do think it was the right decision, but I worry about him still. And he's with a new family, not lost!

I dig the Crayola window markers... hmmm... that gives me an idea! I also like that saying, "I just wanna make beautiful things even if nobody cares".

Very cool.
