happy birthday big brother. {not the show}

Sunday, September 6, 2009
its a big birthday.
but i won't tell anyone what #..
cause i love you like that

so happy birthday
from your favorite {only} sister
{dad, me, cousin lisa, you.. circa early 80's}

i sent a card
but i haven't gotten you a gift yet
because i didn't know what to get you

i mean you have everything
and if you find something you don't have...
that you want...
well you find a way to get it.

so that leaves making you something
{which after painting your house... shouldn't be necessary}
but you know me.

so here is what i have
a bolt of this

and one week till mom & dad fly out to visit you..
and can be my free {& safe} shipping service

so tell me what you want
asap.
and i need to be able to do it in a week
with work
and other projects
{keep that in mind}

everyone else...
feel free to throw your two cents in and give him some suggestions.
i'm sure he'll appreciate it..
;-)

You could make him some Eagles throw pillows for his new den.

Please wish your Brother a Happy Birthday from the UK
As to what to get/do him how about a photo quilt, a quilt with family photos on or do it as a wall-hanging

Ok, here's something quick for you to make...how about pajama bottoms and a matching pillow case for the day of the big game. Sounds like couch potato gear to me!!! Good luck.

I was thinking it would make a cute Christmas stocking. Santa would definitely know which one is his!

How about a manly chef apron for tailgate grilling? (made my dad one out of Penn State fabric ) ... oh, and a matching chef hat !! (they're very easy to make ... I've made a few of them )
