Surfin' Baby

This surfin" baby will be living in Alaska. I thought a little California sunshine in a quilt just might brighten up a very cold winter. It was made on a 5" grid. Charm squares and half charms alternated with 2.5" and 5" strips of Kona cotton. I may never do the channel quilting again. It took forever and shifted the quilt left to right more than I expected. The result, however, was a very soft hand.

Baby #2

Jenn will be having a little boy this fall. She lives in Alaska and her shower will be in Southern Cal this weekend. I made her a boy friendly diaper bag with travel themed burpies. There is a quilt too! I love this one. The colors are so much fun.

One, two, three babies on the way!

Katie, Caroline, and Jenn, are all due with babies in the fall. With three baby showers on the horizon, I decided to get busy and make diaper bags, matching burpies, and quilts. The first bag is for Katie. She is having a girl. Jenn's baby boy bag is up next.

Sweet Dreams

One of my students had us over for dinner. She made the entire meal herself. I was so proud of her! As a little thank you, I made the sisters sweet pillowcases.

Shannon's Baby

Shannon works at our school as a PE and recess aide. She always has a smile on her face and speaks in soft tones. The kids LOVE her. Mrs. Shannon, as she is known, is now having a baby of her own. We will miss her at LCE. She was mum about the baby's gender so I went old school with the 1930's fabric and some hankies.

Bon Appetit Bob and Roz

I made these place mats for my jet setting friends Bob and Roz. Captain Bob is a pilot with Quantas and literally is a jet setter! We love the opportunity to spend time with him and his beautiful wife Roz. Back home in Australia, they own a winery, hence the wine theme fabric.
