Alive I say, alive

So a non related thought to start this.  I went to a St. Patrick’s day parade today and one of the main purposes was to see the Alexandria Pipe and Drum Band.  Did I accomplish this, of course not.  Because the parade was not supposed to start until 12:30, so we decided to get lunch first.  I did at least get to see other pipe bands.  I love bagpipe music.  I was asked if I always get so excited, and I explained how previously I live in Pennsylvania Dutch country, so not many chances to see bag pipes.  It was a good parade, and who knew there were so many Irish dance schools in the area.

Okay so you may be wondering about the title.  It is because I have now successfully attached the giraffe to the sky and land.  I took the consensus advice and put batting beneath to make it raised.  By consensus I mean when I asked 4 other people, they all said yes at once.  I was leaning towards it already, I just wanted to make sure it was worth the use of batting.  You never know when I will want to make another quilted bag

So I double layered the a batting to make it noticeably giraffe-pins.jpgraised.  Which should not be a problem like with my sister’s quilt (to be discussed in more detail at a later time), which is apparently too warm (I thought a quilt was supposed to be warm).

So I finish attaching and then added the nostril.  And now it can breath although not see (I have to find the buttons I bought), so therefore it is alive.
