When I was in sixth grade (1989 to be specific) I fell in love with this TV show called 'The Young Riders.' It followed the adventures and exploits of a group of Pony Express riders. I was absolutely obsessed with this show and taped every single one. Even though they finally all came out on DVD I still have the cassettes, as I so vividly remember sitting in front of the TV on Thursday nights, trying to get my timing just right on the record button so as to omit the commercials. When I saw that center fabric, which is the oath any riders had to take, I had to have it, and the postmark fabric is because, well, they delivered the mail across the country. The TVs don't have quite the impact I wanted--I should have put them as the outside triangles so they could be bigger, but it's fine. And as a fun fact, I'm pretty sure the TV we had in 1989 looked like that one :)
"I worked all day. I want to sit here with my beers, and watch Dr. Who! I don't think that's too much to ask!" This block could also be known as "That tardis fabric was pricey and I needed to use the scraps" :)
This one is my homage to the James Herriott-inspired TV series "All Creatures Great and Small." The seventies TV, the adorable lambs (don't you think lambs have an unfair share of cuteness?), the grassy pasture...I've seen a few episodes of that show and it kind of really looks like this :)
And this block is for every kid who's ever heard the words "Will you turn off those video games and go play outside?"
The next blocks will be fairly random. I think I made those when I was getting tired...
