So, I know Mommy told you last week all about how we had to wait and wait to get her board from the wood shop. And then it wasn't even the right kind of board but we taked it anyway. (Did mom tell you how fun that wood shop was? I had a great time getting my knees dirty, and watching tractors and trying to climb lumber. Moms kind of freak out when you climb too high up on lumber piles.)
Last week when Mommy told you about the board, her good friend Marcia just up and sent a HUGE piece of flannel for us to use on the board.
She sent it for free, and I pretty much think she meant it all for me.
Can you see me?
But mommy is stingy and took that flannel for herself.
We had to lay it out on the floor all nice and neat, and then lay the board on top of that.
I was really good at supervising this part.
Then daddy and I got to work using the staple gun.
Dad's not a quilter so he didn't know how to make good corners.
He tried to fold it like this, but mom forces me to watch her quilt, or she's always reading quilting blogs so I know all about how to do that stuff right. I just taked over from there.
(Mom says that she loves having all my toys in the background of these photos.
I say a boy can't expect to work on stuff for his mom and clean up his toys at the same time.)
After all the stapling was done, I had to do some testing.
First I ran a race or two all the way around the edge.
MOM--you are showing me in my big boy undies. How embarrassing!
This had better not go in the blog book!
Next I tried a car or two out on it.
Yep, seems solid.
Daddy and I hung it on the wall, and then I got right to work designing a new quilt.
That was all my own design.
Pretty cool, huh?
Now it's up to mom to get that mystery quilt up there that she keeps whining about.
My work here is finished.
Now I can write my pumpkin blog I hope.
