doll quilt swap four

as i mentioned before, i took part in doll quilt swap four. and it was a lot of fun! my swap partner, cecy, loves solids and bold fabrics, so i sure hope she likes this quilt. here is the back...
oh, and she likes owls, so i embroidered one on the quilt label. i think he is quite cute. i used three different colors of thread together for the embroidery and i like it. i have never used more than one color at the same time...
i hope to get around to some more sewing this weekend. we are finally getting into a groove around  here with homeschooling, so my thoughts sometimes drift toward sewing...imagine that! of course some of my ideas are for school, so i am not drifting too far.

Too cute! Wish I had some of your motivation and love for sewing. I never commented on the beach photos, but man do you have beautiful children and a handsome dad---"old blue-eyed papa"

so cute...too bad i don't have daughter to make doll quilts for. oh who am i kidding, even if i did have a daughter, there's no time in the world for me to make something as cute and fantastic as this piece of art! love the owl, what a fun animal.

I'm already dreaming up ways to get some handstiching work done while in the story tree with the boys. As they learn to read better they can read to me while I sew....
Getting the grove of homeschooling, crafting, keeping house and being a good wife can take a while can't it!
