Giveaway, AAQI and Stuff


Morning Everyone!

Welcome to March. It is  suppose to be heading for spring but it is only 41 degrees today here in FL. Sweat shirt hoodies being worn all over the house.

Giveaway winner is Linda W. from Ohio!
Winner was selected at random. I hope Linda likes the fabrics!

I want to thank everyone that left a comment on my blog for "It's All About Me"! I so appreciate the great comments. Sometimes you just have to hear it from someone else, that you are heading in the right direction.
I came in as one of the top 3 for February 21 in the ALL ABOUT ME blog hop challenge! What fun!!!
Louie just loves this wall hanging and is still putting his nose on the sewing table! Click HERE for full story!

February AAQI Quilt

Sprint to Spring
Aileen Kline

I continue with my commitment to Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. They will stop collecting quilts August 1, 2013. I am determined to make at least one a month to the very end.
Someday I may be a recipient of the leaps forward made in Alzheimer's research do to this worthy cause. The goal is $1 million dollars by the December 31, 2013. I don't see why that can't be achieved if everyone pitches in. I make all my little quilts from scraps. The hardest part is sending them off in the mail!
and Stuff - NewFO
My oldest daughter is expecting her second child. It's a girl. With the help of her sister, I have been able to make a lot of little things for her. I wish that I had time to make them for myself when I was younger. It has been a lot of fun. I am by no means near finished but the pile is growing daily and the baby is due at the end of March. Time is really flying.
Her taste in fabric is not my taste. Not even in the same ballpark, but these are made with love from both of us.


Receiving Blanket

3 Receiving blankets, 12 burp rags, changing mat. I also made about a dozen breast covers since she will be nursing.
The oddest thing I made was a Nursing cover. It is kinda like a apron but does not tie in the back. You just put it on for privacy while nursing in public, etc. The fabric is skulls, which by the pink receiving blanket. gives away her fabric preference! LOL
I added a pocket in an angle with a key ring and carabener, so she can have easy access to her cellphone and keys. I did make it reversible, with a more sedate fabric on the back.

Happy Quilt to All !
