    I cut open our tiny seedless watermelon tonight to find how how pretty it was. I've never seen this design in one before. I had to take a pic before the kiddos ate it.

    When you posted your topper that was my thought - what fun it would be to have the kids 'find the food' that they would be eating or put that 'beautiful' pineapple each morning on a block showing something they want that day.

    When I read that you 'cut a watermelon', I thought you lost your mind. Thinking 'you can't get a good watermelon in January'. I expected it to be pale in color. You fooled me. That does look delicious.

    I was surprised it was so good. It was so small though. I pay the same price for the huge ones in the summertime. So worth it to be eating watermelon in the middle of the winter!!!

    Watermelon. What a wonderful summer treat in the middle of winter. And a free quilt block design, too.
