Busy....but not with sewing

 It was Ellie's 2 year birthday party the first part of June.  She had a Minnie Mouse theme.  Here she is eating one of the Minnie Mouse cupcakes that Nicky made for us.   She had to take a break from opening all the presents she got.  I think maybe the 2 Grandmas need to be a little more conservative with gifts!  She finally said, "Don't want to" when asked to open more gifts.
 I saw this simple pattern for making a bandanna dress and thought I should make one for Ellie.  They really do only take a few minutes to whip together.
Since she will be having a little brother soon it was time to buy a big girl bed.  She was quite happy with it especially since she got Princess bedding.  

Guess I really need to get back to working on some quilt.  With the summer weather I want to be outside (possibly I need to move my sewing machine to the patio), and our work hours are much longer now too with everyone wanting their surgery while school is out.

Happy Quilting!                        Lynda

Quiet Book

Nicky and I have been working on making a Quiet Book.  Well, Nicky started it and decided I needed to work on it if it was ever going to get finished.  Here are a couple of pages to add to it.  Nicky has some of the pages we finished earlier.  I sew and cut and she embellishes.  This one is Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head.  I think we need a few more hair or ears.  
Jonah and the whale turned out pretty cute too.

Here the Scriptures (after Nicky adds a scripture verse) holds all the armor for our Stripling Warrior).  He is putting on the whole armor of God to defend himself against the evils of the world.

Next I'll be working on David and Goliath.

Happy Quilting!                Lynda
