First I gotta show off the changes I made to the Girl Cave today!! I got Pappa's quilt back yesterday and I hung it in my cave today. When I met Pappa, all he had wanted for a long time was an American Flag quilt for his bed. Pappa was very patriotic and had served in the Korean War (I believe, could be wrong) and WW II (this I know for sure). I immediately set about designing one. I was still pretty new at quilting at the time, so it didn't turn out that great, but Pappa treasured it. He was also the first of the Markham's to accept Tyler and I into the family 100% and unconditionally. I cherish this quilt, not because I made it, but because it belonged to Pappa and he cherished it. It broke my heart that after he passed it was stored in a closet. I love that it is now close to me and I feel closer to him now.
I also moved the quilt my mom made for my MicKenzie. James did not like the window behind my chair. I loved the natural light, but as I do spend many late hours in here, James does have a point. My cave is at the very back of the house and it wouldn't be hard for someone to be looking in that window. Don't know why that would want to, but it really bothered James. So, I moved Kenzie's quilt to cover the window and feel like a part of her is watching over me :)
Then, on my other wall, I moved my favorite pics of when the kids were little on each side of the Guardian Angel pic from my mom. I love looking up there and seeing their faces!
