Sweet Girl, a Chicken and a Zebra

So I have this sweet girl. She also has a chicken that goes with her almost everywhere. Well last week on Friday, Grandpa had a zebra sent to her by Cassie from You Go Girl Designs. Isn't this zebra just adorable? Her name is Zinny and Rachael adores her, I think as must as Chicken Doodle.
Thank you Dad and Cassie for the wonderful surprise you gave to Rachael.
Later I will post the surprise that I got.

My Sweet Little Girl

I have a sweet little girl that I love to sew for. So on Saturday night I decided that she needed a new dress to wear to church. I had bought this darling mushroom fabric at Joann's of all places. And then the polka dot is from the Garden Party line from Anna Maria Horner and I think goes darling together. I surprised her with it on Sunday morning when she woke up and she was so excited. She loves it so much that she wore it again today.
Now I am off to make some outfits for Easter. See ya.

AQB2 Block Finished

Here is the block that I made for Stephanie. She requested it to be the spiderweb block and then she sent us the fabrics. I think that this is going to be a fantastic quilt. I have had this block made for a few weeks but just barely mailed it out today. I hope that she likes it. Or better yet that her hubby likes it, because according to Stephanie the quilt is for him.

Happy Birthday Sweetie

Today is my Sweetie's birthday. He is thirty-nine today. It is alright for me to say that because I turned 39 on St. Patrick's Day. Yes he married an older woman.

He took the day off and we played all day. He is the best husband and daddy. And he is my best friend.
Happy Birthday Honey. I love you. Hope you had a great day.

Another Quilt Finished

I have finished yet another quilt. This time it was commissioned by a friend of mine for a friend of hers. She ordered it in November, but said she was not in a hurry for it, it's a good thing since it took me until yesterday to finish it. But it turned out beautifully.

All it is, is just scraps of fabrics sewn together and then quilted. The back is finished with a sage green chenille. I then bound it with a sage green and cream polka dot fabric.

Since it was a gift, I decided to gift wrap it for her and made a coordinating gift card for it, using the binding fabric and a cute pink button. She is taking it to her friend this weekend. I hope she likes it.

I Spy...

A sick girl under a brand new snuggly quilt.
Rachael helped pick out the i spy fabrics for this quilt out of my stash
and has been patiently waiting for me to finish it.

This quilt measures 55"x 66". And there is two of every block.
I got the inspiration for this quilt from Sarah, when she made this quilt.

Rachael went with me to pick the fabric for the back of her quilt.

She picked this happy striped flannel.

Here is the quilt all folded and snuggly looking.
This also gives me another finished project for March.
Have a great weekend. Off to take care of my sick sweetie pie.
