Yesterday I was roaming around some blogs I read and came across Allison's post about some cute fabric she had found at JoAnn's. Very cute! I happened to need to go and get some batting so we sweet talked hubby into driving down to Columbus with us and went shopping. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending how you look at it!) the nearest Joann's is about an hour away. Anyway - here's what I got!
This first group is going to be made into a lap quilt for my husband's employee. She will be leaving us in August to go to grad school in Texas. She was #1 in her graduating class and we are not sure how we will ever replace her. We have been lucky to have her with us for two years. Anyway - I wanted to make her something special as a going-away gift.
And then there is this lemon fabric! I love it! It is an Alexander Henry fabric and it is so bright and cheery! It has a nice weight to it.
These last two are from Hobby Lobby. They remind me of the Orla Kiely stuff at Target.
This is a little peak at three lap quilts I am making for the sons of a friend of ours that passed away suddenly last week. The boys are 15, 12, and 9. They will have a long road ahead of them without their mama - breaks my heart. My stomach is still in knots whenever I think about it.
We were supposed to be in Washington DC this week for spring break but Ian came down with a bad cough last week so we decided it wasn't wise to go off like that. Now me and hubby are getting so throats so it is just as well that we are at home. Gives me lots of time to sew though!
