Girls need their shoes

Right?

One of Laura’s nurses is having a baby soon and when I saw this Simplicity pattern (on sale at Joanns some time ago for a buck each, no lie) I knew it would be fun and cute. Who cares if babies only wear stuff for a split second and then it’s too small. DSC00445

Soooo cute! and tiny. I told Jen she could tie a bow on them and hang them on her Christmas tree. She says, no. She will have many more baby girls who will wear them. Yes, this is her first baby and she doesn’t know yet. Know what?? Moms can chime in here.

It has been a while since I posted and in the meantime

  • I made more stuff to sell at the upcoming quilt show: large totes, baby bibs (with snaps… my latest notion purchase, snap pliers).
  • Laura was in the hospital with pneumonia so she’s on the slow road to recovery.
  • Now we have daytime nurses to take care of her
  • And I went to the MQX show in Manchester for the first time in a long time. That is the Machine Quilters Expo. 

Yes I took pix to show you. Here is the BACK of a gorgeous quiltDSC00426

It was encrusted with crystals. The centers of those blocks were large jewel-like things. This one was amazing.DSC00433
