Feverishly Stitching

For the last few weeks, I've been working on the quilt for my great nephew.  Lil guy came a few weeks early making me now be a few weeks late with this quilt.  I'm close to finishing the hand quilting but not yet done. I've put in quilt batting and am backing the quilt with swirly brown minky. 


In yesterday's mail, I got some really good things instead of just mail!

I ordered these great pacifier leashes and matching pouch from my friend Karen's Etsy Shop.  These I will send along with the quilt to my great nephew.


Then Karen sent me something for me as a surprise! That girl is crazy and sweet and such an inspiration!

Love it! Thank you so much Karen!

Karen has a tutorial on her blog on how to make these great mug cozzies too!

How inconsiderate of the little guy to come early and make you late, haha. Everything's sooo cute! Love that cup cozy, too! Will have to check her blog out :-) So much fun when we have some little ones to sew for.
