Saturday Sewing Stuff

Had a great sewing day! Made pillows to match the blanket at the foot of the guest bed:
Then made a couple gifts for my friend, Susan. A bag full of "blue bags" for her walks with Callie Girl:
And a liner for her bike basket, where Callie can be comfy and enjoy all the sites:
And Theresa and I finally finished a baby boy quilt for our friend at work, Jenn who is due to have her 3rd boy this week!
Fun,fun,fun......I've got alot of Mother's Day ideas....just wish my hands worked as fast as my mind...

Who's Doing What???

Had Miss Emily over today. Either I watched her or she watched me, but we were both thoroughly entertained! We did some yucky errands, then went to McDonalds and JoAnns.

She/we made this beautiful dress:

And a pretty pillow with wild zebra hearts:
So much fun to teach and learn and sew.......
