Aw...precious times. What a clever idea to take that picture. She'll cherish it, I am sure.

Very sweet, Debbie!

We do have a great library huh?

And I can't wait until my kiddos are old enough. How old do you think that is? 5 or 6. So cute!

Ah-love my library card! Except I want to OWN all the books I read:)

I have my senior prom picture on those very steps.

That's so awesome! I don't think I got a library card until I was a teenager. But, maybe they didn't give them to kids back when I was young. I don't remember. I'm so happy for K. :)

I remember my first library card. It is the only library card I don't still have. (I think I have 4 others.) And that's because when I was a kid they kept your card at the library until a certain age. I even remember how it looked with my name typed on it. Can you tell I somehow miss it?

Ah... music to my eyes! :)

You should ask to see Kayla's Lewisville Library card sometime! I think she got it when she was in middle school! Her signature on the back is so cute!

I love your picture! I used to walk past the Provo Library every day on my way to classes... that was back when it still looked old and creepy and they were trying to raise money to restore it! Does that mean I'm old??

Way to instill a love of books early in life.

So adorable! :) I still remember the excitement of my first library card.

There's nothing like getting your first library card! We have moved a lot and one of the first things I want to know is if the town we move in has a good library.

Debbie,
Thanks for the comment on my quilt. Actually, the quilt I did isn't a "real" quilt. You don't do any quilting designs. It's called a rag quilt. It's a really easy way to quilt. If you google "Rag Quilt Tutorials", there are tons of websites that show you how to do it. I'm sure you could easily make a quilt with the fabric you have. I had 5 different fabrics and I think 1 yard of each (not sure on that). Basically all you do is cut the fabric in squares, then layer badding between two fabric squares. Then sew an X on each square (that's the extent of the "quilting"). Then sew all the squares together. The top of the quilt will have the seams showing and you clip all the seams and wash the quilt so it frays. The quilt that I have pictured is actually one quilt, one picture of the front and one of the back. If you click on the photo, you can see it in a little more detail. Anyway, this long comment is basically to just tell you that you could definitely make a quilt out of your fabric. It's quite easy.
