I have realized something important

while Andrew has had the stomach flu. When you have small children, two sets of sheets is just not enough.

Hi Jilly,
Thanks for visiting my blog! Ugh, I am so sorry to hear about the flu invasion at your house. I have 3 kids under the age of 4, and when it hits one, it seems to go down the line. And you're right, you can never have enough sheets.
Regarding the Full Moon Forest fabric, I LOVE IT. Working with it on the quilt-a-long has been so much fun. Unfortunately, I believe the line has been discontinued. The bad news is that it can be hard to find. The good news is, if you do find it, chances are it will be on sale.
Good luck!

Hey Jilly, probably too late for this round, but, we've found a plethora of towels work wonders when the kids have the flu (and having 3 sets of sheets, and an extra comforter). We put the towels over the pillow and under where Elijah (or Jeremy) sleeps, and keep a tub beside the bed (usually the one that the tub toys are stored it, we just dump those in the tub for the night. It also helps having superhuman mommy-powers of supersonic hearing, because if I'm fast enough most of it will go either into the tub/bucket or the floor (which with hardwoods, makes easy cleanup)...of course, most of the time, it really lands all over me. Ahhh mommy-ness
