Gift for a Friend

Last year, someone did something very nice for me. I told her that I would make her a quilt and jokingly she replied, "yeah." A couple of weeks ago, I asked what was her favorite color and she replied, "PINK!" Have I got the quilt for her.

Using one of my favorite patterns and a "Watermelon" bali pop, here is the quilt I am sending to Wendy. Enjoy girlfriend and once again, thanks.

Birthday Present In The Mail

As the norm, I am making mother's birthday present . . . a pillow with a photo. Trying to select which picture was a tough choice. There was a picture of the group who went to see "Star Wars," pictures of the grandchildren, and a couple of miscellaneous group shots from different events. None of those struck me with any bright ideas. Then my sister sent me a picture and I decided that was the one.

This year the picture I am using is that of mother's darling baby boy as a four year old. (My little brother is now over 6 ft. tall and 50-something.) The black and white photo would work well with black and white fabrics, so the decision was made and I went to work.

Happy Birthday mom.
