Wednesday's Wickedly Awesome-Dinosaur Travel Playmat

Two posts in one day?  You betcha!  I wouldn't forget to feature the really cool stuff I've found on the blogsphere this week.

Kathleen is about as new to this crafty blogging thing as I am, but you'd never know it by the great stuff she has on her blog.  I absolutely adore this Dinosaur Travel Playmat that she's so graciously offered as a tutorial.  I don't know about you, but as a mom, I'm always on the lookout for things to throw in my magic bag of tricks.  One more thing to keep the boys occupied while waiting.  Another amazing mom to add to the collection!

On a personal note:  Today was 2nd Christmas.  Some packages that were mysteriously missing in the mail turned up.  Which means not only a second Christmas because my parent's Christmas presents finally arrived (or were finally FOUND in the mailroom!!!!!!) but also because I also received a whole bundle of fabrics, I've been waiting months for.  I'm so excited, I don't know where to start.  Here's to ticking things off on my crafty to-do list!  Yahoo!

The rest of the Heather Bailey Fabric for my Twin sized quilt.  The Peonies on the left is 5 yards of fabric.  I never knew how much that really was.  Wow, that's a lot of fabric.  Now I'm a little nervous about the final quilting of so much fabric.  The middle fabric  is for the binding and the rest on the right is for a few of the blocks.

Lots of lucious flannel intended for nice, warm pjs for the boys.  The checks on the left might also go to a birthday outfit for S.  Did I mention he's turning 1 next month.  I think in all the Robot birthday bash talk, I forgot to mention that very important fact. 

This lovely set of Kona solids is going to become a firefighters costume for C's dress up corner.  If I hurry, it could be another choice for the Carnival party his preschool class is having mid-February.  I haven't decided what to do with the cars fabric but I thought it was just too cute to pass up.

And this beautiful piece of fabric?  This will be used for matching Easter outfits for my handsome little dudes.  It is a beautifully lightweight Picnic Searsucker.  I can't wait to make their little suits.
