College, capes, Cinderella, and castles, oh my!!! It has been a busy week so I have not done much sewing but I have had some fun mail come from my Wombat Stew friends :). We took four days and flew half way across the country to settle our oldest into his college dorm. I always knew I wanted to be a mom and have given thought to the good, bad, fun, and hard parts of motherhood but one thing I have never given much thought to is the growing up and going away part. I am counting the days until Thanksgiving when he will come home for a few days! When we returned I had some happy mail to cheer me... Little Red arrived from Lara. Sweet Kristy drew up the pattern.
|I had seen Little Red online and one darling detail I had not noticed was the gold high lights in her brunette hair. I love her!|
|Kristy also created this Cinderella pattern for me :) I need to embroider the bucket handle but I am saving embroidery details for the end once I have removed the paper from the backs.|
As I was taking pictures of Cinderella my husband arrived home with todays mail. This arrived from Japan from Alyce along with some fabric I ordered from her etsy shop (of course it is some strawberries). I had asked the girls if they could sneak in a ladybug or strawberry that would make my girls happy. Can you spy the ladybug and Little Red in a window. Alyce designed this block and it is a biggie approximately 14x24. Definitely a castle fit for a fairy tale!!
|Quilts sure do come together faster with a little help from your friends :). I am a late linker with Lee today over at Freshly Pieced. Maybe this post could have been brought to you in part by the letter "L" too. Happy Wednesday!!|
