Ralphs closet doesn't have doors on it... another unfinished remodeling project we will get to someday... but at night as im going to sleep... im looking at the wonderfully colored plaid shirts that he wears everyday... reds, greens, blues, yellows... i love them! I want to make a quilt out of them... and he is now afraid im going to start raiding his closet. I was trying to get a picture of them the other day... but he was being a goof so just for him being a goof... heres a hilarious shot of him in his dramatic pose where he is protecting the content of his closet from me while wearing one of the wonderful shirts im talking about.

anyways... i cant cut up all his shirts... because he looks good in them! (there are two that do need to be retired that i plan on stealing but shhh dont tell him) But my other find at the yardsale yesterday and i only spent 50 cents on all of it! The blue and yellow one is actually a homemade curtain valance... but its in that pretty plaid that im looking for!

Im in the finding fabric stage on this project... lol... i cant start them until after i finish all of the christmas presents i have started now!!!

Today i have been attempting to cut up the jeans i found... Sammy is insisting on helping though... i think im going to go watch a movie with ralph, work on some of my little squares and then come back to the cutting process.

Ralph went horseshoeing today, it had been a long time since i went with him but since Buck didn't get up to go with him, i did. We had a good morning, the work went quick and we went out to breakfast... then to hemphill where the hardware store was having an anniversary sale... FREE 5 gallon buckets and if you have horses... you know how great that is!! We each got a bucket and bought some stuff that we needed at 20% off.

the cool thing is we picked out a color of paint for the kitchen. There is alot of history of picking out paint in this house and he has refused to even look at paint, so today i made a deal "one minute, we will look and if we dont find anything we like we will walk away" I was looking in the greens and he pulled out this pretty robin egg blue/teal color and said i want this... i loved it... so yep... were going to paint our kitchen that color!

i hope yall have a great weekend! Its my day off and im going to relax some before i get to work on the radio station thing.
