Bucket lists...

I casually think of the things that I would like to do in my lifetime. I don't make any serious plans to do any of them. With the passing of my mother-in-law at the relatively young age of 63 last month, I realized that there is no time like the present to change the "wishes" into goals. Here is the start of my list:

Go on a cruise
Ride a train
Take a pottery class
Throw a coin in the Trevi fountain in Italy
Learn a fancy dance with my husband
Go on a honeymoon to a white sand beach with clear water
See the Grand Canyon
See tulips in Holland
Go to Seattle again
Take kids to the Oregon Coast
Learn how to make stained glass
Go to a National Square Dance
Cirque de Soliel in Las Vegas
Go to Ireland
Pay off debt (except house)
Stay at the Gingerbread Mansion B&B in Ferndale, CA
Take Jessica to a Strawberry Festival
Learn calligraphy
Build a round house
Learn Italian
See Mt. Rushmore
Square Dance in a foreign country
Visit Seeley Lake, Montana
Go to the Redwoods again
Stay in the Out'n'About Treehouse Treesort in Takilma, Oregon
Stay in the Railroad Park Resort in Dunsmuir, CA
Visit the Idaho Botanical Gardens

At last...

I made the new covers for the couch pillows. When we got the new couch about 4 years ago, I intended to make covers right away. The pillows that came with the couch were totally not our style. Southwestern is not my thing. I finally found inspiration from I love how they turned out. Becca wants an entire quilt for her bed made like this.
