Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

Sometimes it's good to be Great

or a great aunt that is.  My oldest nephew is having a baby next month.  So of course, I'm way behind schedule on the baby quilt.  That's right I said quilt and not a blanket.  Thought I'd try and stretch myself a little.  A while back my friend Karen and I went to the The Road to California Quilt show and we both picked up this pattern.  She, however, has already made one of these and it's available on her Etsy site for sale.  It's adorable! You should buy it!

Well the nursery my nephew and his girl have planned it kind of a dark moss green with chocolate brown and fleur dis lis (momma is from NOLA).  It's really very pretty and serene.  I was able to get a peak at it when I visited in February.

So here is what I've started and I hope to get it done pretty soon.

I participated in another one of Aunt Pitty Pat's swaps! Her swaps are so much fun.  Here is what I sent.


Plus a few other things like a hummingbird mug, some fat quarters and some quilting pins.

Here is what I got from Janice my partner!  Isn't it adorable?  thank you so much!




Thank you Aunt Pitty Pat for another fun swap!
