I thought the top was done...
But it turns out it was not quite wide enough. I am so glad I took it out to California and the kids at Christmas so that we could lay it on the bed and make well demonstrated decisions! So it turns out that 8 -10 inches need to be added to the right side (the side representing the Midwest). We all talked about it and decided CORN! What did we seeing growing up in Illinois but corn and more corn (and soybeans but that isn't really a easily identifiable plant). So I did a strip of corn on the right side. We also decided the trip from Chicago to San Francisco Bay was important so I will start on a city strip for the top tomorrow! After I clean house. It sadly needs it.
More pictures of the decision process:
The other reason for adding the city strip is that Jeff is very tall and we want to make sure we have enough to cover his feet!
Lastly, a few pictures of people I truly love taken this holiday season. Happy New Year!
