Recently I made something for a YOUNG Man  (BOY) in my life. This was my theme ( Man of Steel)  and all of my attention was focused on this fabric line from Camelot Fabrics and who happens to be our sponsor for this hop as well. You will have to wait and see the completed quilt and photos, I am tickled BLUE with it...( pink is for girls)  And a big thanks to Mary who managed to find this exquisite model... I am soooo into Man of Steel now. There is a wonderful story about Kal-El that will certainly bring a smile to your lips...will share on my day of our Boy Hop!

And who will be leading us into BOY LAND.....?
AMY is our cheerleader for this hop from Sew Incredibly Crazy  ( schedule is here and on side bar)
 and crazy she is not..but she is creative, funny, committed over the top CHEERLEADER. So we think she is young enough at heart to tackle this hop...

OHHHH let's cheer on those BOYS, men in our LIVES! 

Boogeyman is a GEEK!

He came to me one night
with a sadness and a fright
Seemed the boogeyman had come out to play
and he was not letting him sleep this day…

So we went to his room with our magic wand
and swept everywhere to what seemed like dawn
When I noted his yawning and wiping his eyes
WE cuddled back to bed my little guy
and I.

I'd reach to kiss his cheek
and noted how he smelled so sweet
After washing and powdering from head to toe
it is at night that he just glows….

My little boy who during the day
has me wondering what on earth would I say
When he is older and wiser 
and memory so weak..
together we wiped out that geek! 

His Mumm x
