Quilts, kids and rock ‘n’ roll
I made that my Twitter bio to make my life seem a little cooler than it really is, but I realized that this is a pretty accurate description of my daily life. I thought that I’d try to make it a regular feature, highlighting a great quilt I found elsewhere, something related to those short adorable people I care for and a song that’s really striking the right chord at the moment.
Scattered by Katie at Sew Katie Did. I actually just found her site through Pinterest, and I really like her style.
My preschooler had a superhero day at school this week, and he wore his custom cape, an awesome gift from some family members.
I’ve been thinking about trying to make one myself– it’s an awesome gift, a simple applique design, and it has magnets in the neck enclosure so that it releases if the cape snags on anything. But for now I just hit up supercapes.com.
Rock ‘n’ Roll
Last night Joe and I got to see Muse live, arena rock style. It was a great show dampened a little knowing that the manhunt in Boston was nearing its end. But this encore, one of the hits from an early album, a love song, sounded just right.
Note: These recommendations are my own. I only share them because I want to.
ok, so I meant to comment on this forever ago but I wanted to find the blog that I’m going to reference….but I read to many and now it’s all a blur….
anyway, I cracked up to some reference to an Andrew WK quote and thought of it again when I read your first paragraph….the genius is quoted as saying something like “you know how to party hard as long as you’re doing what you love”…or whatever. I guess the point is, rock’n’roll is right, lady. it’s the definition if you can buck the system and do what you love on your terms.
And sewkatiedid is our Alice Cooper.
I love that the internet has connected us. YOU rock.
