 This blanket was made for Abigail Sophia.  All I did was take some scraps and  throw them together.  This fits the mothers personality we're not so sure about the newborns.

 After realizing Abigail was getting all of the attention, I felt like older sister Hannah should get something also. So, I  took a pair of old jeans and cut them into three inch squares. Then, I sprayed basting spray on the square and attached fun, hip fabric on to them so that they matched. After realizing  they needed something to be put in, I  made a fun, hip bag.  Now big sister can play with her friends on rainy and hot days!

Lets play a game!

After seeing a picture of my great niece on a pink and brown fleece blanket for the 4th of July I went into sewing mode.  I thought that if they were waiting for the 4th of July parade to get started  they should have something to keep them occupied.  So I made a checker board that holds real checkers.  In the middle there is a tic-tac-toe board.  At the other end there is a game board I made that has kids do many inter-active moves. The game board can be played with buttons I provided.  (Clever I know)I had it quilted just like a quilt.  I also left more on one end by the game board so that more people can sit around it and play. I think I thought of everything.

Red, White and Blue on My Porch

 This was my quick fix to some scraps and and a Happy 4th of July design. I  took my red, white and blue scraps and made them into flags.  All I did was cut them out and put a design stitch around it and voila.  Then, I added a strip of white fabric around the top that held them together.  The strip was made similar to binding.  I sewed them together about three inches a part and I love them! They added to my front porch and made it seem like my house should be on a lake on the east coast!  I even caught someone walking down the street admiring them. Happy 4th of July!

 My flowers put in little pots just waiting to bloom.
