Well I lost Eliana today. (and yes you can looses a child in your own house)
I was getting the boys ready for church today, and turned around to - no Eliana. So (with the help from the boys) we started looking around the house. Any parent knows that kids usually hide in obvious places - and when there not in those obvious places, you can just follower the giggles:) But, today there was no giggles to follow.
We checked the whole house - and still no Eliana. At this point I was becoming very nervous - and late for church.
On checking her room for the 3rd time I saw a white diaper!
And out popped little miss Eliana.
And how did she get up there you ask?... From this big elephant.
Today as we move deeper into the jungle we find the creature know as "curtains". The "curtain" is camouflage and will hide itself well where there is shrubbery and other plant life.
The birthing process for this animal is as follows:
As a new born this animal will be an all white sheet, but after the process of tie dye, it assumes a green coloring throughout (if you would like it to be really bright, you must use all cotton - I used cotton/polyester blend so it is really light). As the curtain matures even more, the shapes of plants and vines and leaves are applied by using iron on adhesive. The fully mature curtain is identified by two patches of little monkey faces.
Awhile ago I posted that I was making 2 quilts, 2 curtains for my sister in-law. I had planned on posting pictures right away... but it took a little longer to finish than I had planned on, and just about the time I did finish - my camera fell in the river :(
So here I am, I did get a new camera, and I am going to post about these items I made (one at a time) and hopefully you guys enjoy them.
When my sister in-law asked me to do this for her she wanted a jungle theme for her kids - so these next few blog posts are an invitation to come on a jungle safari. The first animal we will see today is the pillow.
The male of this species is referred to as "Brandon". And even from behind you can spot the male because of his bright orange marking.
The female is referred to as "Kinsey". She can be spotted from behind as well by her pink marking.
