Finally had a little free time and decided to use it to make a few baby quilts, so I'd have them already done the next time one of my friends or relatives had a little one. This was made with hand-dyed solids, plus the multi-colored store-bought background.
Made with a Color Creations hand-dyed Rainbow Roll, plus black and the commercial border print, in 2006. (It took 5 years of staring at that roll of fabric before I could make myself cut it. I really like how this one turned out, though. It was a gift for the son of my husband's best friend from school when he was born.
I recently came across the pattern for these adorable little Love Bug cushions pattern. I really wanted to make some and with my 'little people' now all past the stage, I decided to make them for my sister's grandchildren. They have open wings (ie: not stitched down) so that you can pop your little message under the wing & they too can write their own little message & pop under there also. Ideal for those small people who just love to write or receive notes.
We recently lost our beautiful son in law Curtis to Pancreatic Cancer after a three-year mighty struggle of survival. Our little grandson was having a charity fete day at his school & the children had to decide which charity would be the recipient of the funds raised at their stall. Eleven year old Jake & cousin Taite decided that Pankind had to be the charity to benefit from their funds having lost uncle Curtis & poppy Bill to another cancer a few years ago. Jake decided to make some bookmarks to sell, so he got set on my sewing machine and away he went, Sewing all day for two consecutive days making over 70 bookmarks. His efforts to be commended.
