    been having "one of THOSE days" for a week now

    sigh.

    Life certainly can be challenging sometimes, and not much can beat the special challenge young adult children bring!

    I have had these projects I simply HAD! to get done. Hard when life is soooo very hard right now. But I did get one finished and in the hands of the recipient. A baby quilt for my husbands good friend at work. Baby is due any day now.
    here it is before I quilted it:


    here is the back. This is micro chamois




    Now I have 2 quilts to make for my dad he wants to give to his sisters. He picked the pattern from a few I showed him, and I embellished to make it more personal. The pattern is Spring Sprouts by Laundry Basket Quilts.

    They will both be different, so here is the 1st one's few blocks I have started. They are not stitched down yet, just fused on with Misty Fuse.

      The baby quilt is beautiful. Love the stitching. The appliqués are pretty. Like the addition of the frog.

            Love the whales and I especially Love the frogs! You have still found time to do a lot of work...don't be too hard on yourself..8) I seem to have more free time lately...and I find myself just sitting in my sewing room looking at fabric.

                  The baby quilt is precious and I can not think of a more perfect way to quilt it. I love it. Now those frogs, they have to be the cutest ever!

                  Praying for you during this difficult time.
