So back in April we stopped in a furniture store to take a look at bunk beds for the girls. Felicity was still in a toddler bed, and we thought the three girls would probably end up sharing a room at some point. Of course, the first bunk bed you see in the store was this fort bed. My girls were in *love*. We didn't get any further. Honestly, who wouldn't be? However, we gave ourselves some time to think about it. Then we decided that we have enough kids to make this bed useful for quite awhile, so why not? We had to special order it, and last week it came. It has been a big hit, and they have been telling everyone about their fort bed and having all sorts of pretend adventures.
So, I had a down comforter to fit the double bed on the bottom, but summer here is super hot. Really you don't need much more than a sheet at night. Good reason to finish up one of those quilts that I have been meaning to finish for a year! This is my Fussy Cut Bee quilt. I wanted to finish it last year when I was hosting Finish It Up!, but I only got as far as adding a bit of sashing to some of the blocks. I now have the top mostly assembled. I just have one more white border to add!
I am a slow quilter. Any other slow quilters out there? I see people busting out quilts every couple of weeks, and I get inspired. I can't do that. Okay, so it might have a little something to do with four kids, but I also find quilts to be such big projects. I always seem to lose motivation somewhere along the line. However, I have three quilts I wanted to finish last summer, so I am determined to finish them this summer.
