Dr. Seuss Aprons and Chef Hats

Don't you just love these Dr. Seuss Chef Hats and Aprons !!!  
I looked around for tutorials and found this great tutorial by Joanna Armour you can find it here if you would like to make some Chef Hats and  Aprons of your own. (
 This one is for my nephew and the others are for his boys. They cook together as a family quite often so I thought it was the perfect gift. All of the fabrics you see on the aprons are funky Dr. Seuss pockets.

Look what I made !

This is my first pillow start to finish. I have assisted on a pillow before I just quilted the front and my sister put the rest together to match her daughters wedding quilt that we also made together.

One of my friends brought thispattern to our Sisters Quilting Weekend and I wanted to make one too. Hers was made using wool and it was a kit. I just worked with some scraps and came up with this.

I love it !   What do you think???

Shyla's Doll Quilt

When you are a Grand Aunt like I am you want to spoil these kiddo's rotten and let them do fun things.  Well while recovering from my surgery I am staying at a neices house. Lots of family has been visiting and Shyla wanted to make a quilt for her doll.
I had her pick out the fabric....which was already cut into scrappy strips and away we went. This particular neice is a thumb sucker....and they are trying to get her to stop. Well I told her she could sit on my lap and help if she didn't suck her thumb..... I gave all of the appropriate lectures of warning.....but ....that needle went into her finger so FAST !

If I had just let her suck her thumb her hand wouldn't have been any where near the needle....Darn it !

Needless to say the Grand Aunt Guilt sunk in rather quickly....and what was going to be a small doll quilt is now a "huge" doll quilt. But I hope she will use it for more than a doll quilt which I'm sure she will. It measures 36 X 40. I think she did pretty good picking out the fabric.....What do you think?
