I am a lucky mom to three sweet kids, Big G who is 10 and just figured out that girls are cute. I am having a hard time accepting that he needs more females in his life than just his mom!
Lil G who is 8. This kid is so sweet, but watch out he is probably plotting how to tease his sister or sneak candy before dinner. MayMay who is 7 and the little princess! Give her something tiny, a bowl of cereal and her "buggy" blanket and she is one happy girl!
Mr. Toadly crafty, who I am sure would die if he knew I was calling him that, and I have been married for almost 13 years! We like to tease that we raised each other, because we got married so young (18 and 19). I love crafting and wanted to share it with others. My favorites are papercrafting, scrapping, vinyl crafts, wood crafts. I am just starting to dabble in jewlery, beading and sewing. I have a HUGE respect for all those talented quilters out there!
Another one off my hug them all project. I call this Caleb! Caleb is my 4 year old nephew on my husbands side. This little kiddo is constantly on the go! So the colors and patterns I choose were bright, cheerful and full of energy.
And even though this was not my first quilt ever, it was fun to do a traditional quilt for the first time.
This is the back.
I still need to add his name to it. I need red thread. I think I am going to hand stitch it on.
This is the quilt top I started today. It is for my 6 year old nephew Adien. I am calling it Big Little Boy. 6 is about the age when kids start thinking they are to big for mom and cartoons and early bedtimes, hence the name. So I combined fabrics you might use for a younger boy with fabrics for an older boy. It is all made from scraps I had. But I do need to get more white for the rest of the sashings.
Here is a close up of what I mean by the little boy fabrics, the zoo print in green and the big boy prints, the black, red and gray skulls.
I have also started cutting for the next online quilt along I am doing. It is over at Crazy Mom Quilts. This one I am giving a red, white and blue color scheme for the upcoming holiday. I promised myself that if I got Tayas, Baileys and Calebs quilt done that the next quilt I did would be mine. So this one is for me, well sort of, for my family room which is decorated in a star red white and blue theme.
