Look at my Marshmallow Bunny!

Cole made us this beautiful Easter Bunny out of marshmallows.  I love how he signed his name sideways :)  Love, Love, Love gifts the grandbabes make!  Now to just keep Papa from eating the marshmallows!

Sew Day 12

 Caryn finished Melanie's quilt top.  It turned out so very pretty!  She is even going to machine quilt it herself!  She is so brave :)

 My Marmalade quilt is almost done - I just need to sew on the borders.
Another view...
Sara didn't make sew day today - her hubby worked.  So she worked from home on her 'Single Ladie's Quilt'.  Love how it is coming along!  It looks like she used shot cotton by Kaffe Fassett.

A new Ironing Board cover!

I bought a new ironing board cover from a Vendor on Etsy.  I absolutely love, love, love it!
Of course the print is from one of my favorite fabric designers... Joel Dewberry :)

She makes them with elastic around all edges and they fit your ironing board like a glove!  She also pads it with batting.

Sew Day #11

 Caryn only has the border and she is finished piecing Melanie's top :)
 Our snacks of the day... I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of the Green Pea Crisps.
Almost tasted like cheetos - just more mellow.
                     Sara stayed busy cutting out templates for her 'Single Girl's Quilt'                 pattern. http://www.dsquilts.com/fabric_and_patterns.asp?PageID=83
 And I took a break from my quilt - and made another tote bag out of Melody Miller fabrics and Tula Pink laminates (bottom).
The other side...

3 Elementary School Friends getting together :)

Arvilla, Robin, and Marcia got together yesterday for lunch.  Wish I could have been there.  We have been friends since 5th grade!  Don't they all look so pretty!

The Fairy is coming... The Tooth Fairy, that is :)

                          Can you remember your excitement on losing your first tooth?
About 4 days later... tooth #2 came out :)  She is one happy little girl.  Now she will have teeth missing like most of her classmates at school!

Sew Day #10

Caryn and I were really busy today...
                  Here is one of the finished blocks from Caryn's quilt for Melanie...

                                             And the other block for Melanie's quilt...

                                I spent the day sewing these 12 squares together...

                                  One row on Melanie's quilt finished :)
I got 7 rows of my quilt sewn together ... only 4 more rows then I will do the borders :)
