I love this jungle print fabric. It was the last fabric Jamie ordered for our store. It went fast…really fast. I wish I would have brought more of it home before it all sold. This isn’t a very good picture. Jonny was holding the quilt up so I could take a picture. He kept doing crazy leg dances or putting his head in the way. It’s off to my niece, Paige. She’s having a little boy in a week or two. I bought a new book last week. Tracy showed me this book at the Cotton Shop last week. She was buying it…so of course I had to have one too. I love the idea of a bed runner (like they have at hotels) in the summer! Much easier to fold up at night so you can sleep cooler. I bought a fat quarter bundle/fabric for baby quilts last week too. I got home and just couldn’t make a quilt with it….didn’t look the way I wanted it to. I think I’ll try a bed runner with it instead.It’s been an interesting summer so far. Some big “life changes” in our family right now. Gary had been working with his dad in his family business (mattress and furniture store) for the last 15 years. He’s been running it the last few years since his dad is retired. They got out of the business in May. The man who they they bought their mattresses from is leasing the building and operating under the same name. It was a bittersweet decision. Really hard to leave a place where you’ve raised your kids and grandkids in the back room. Jamie had worked with Gary there for over 9 years and had taken her 2 kids to work with her. Jonny worked there for a few years and still helped with deliveries now and then. Jaycee had been her dad’s delivery help for the last few years. She loved finding Lady Ga Ga songs on the radio and laughing while Gary sang along to them with the windows rolled down.
Where do we go from here? Gary is catching up on all the projects and things that need to be fixed around the house. Working 6 days a week and getting home late really took a chunk of his time. I’m excited to think that we can take real vacations again…not just a day or two here and there. We could even leave the state of Utah…WOW!! I know that he’ll find another job soon. He’s such a talented man!
