I'm just sewing out my stress.

Really December is almost here.  It’s a very busy month around my house, LOTS of birthdays.  My mom, the dogs, best friend, and ME. 

I’ve decided that once again during the month of December to not purchase any new fabric.  I should have almost everything I need for projects in my stash.  There was success earlier this fall and will be repeated. 

Here is my list of items to completed for the month: 

  • Friend’s house-warming quilt
  • Custom order of potholders
  • Hem a few pairs of pants
  • Fix a couple of shirts
  • Complete the top to my Berkeley quilt

Lots to do and get started for 2011. 

Pretty sure I will be going with black, red, and white for the colors of the 2011 Project.  I’m making my list of blocks to start looking at.

I promise I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth.  I have been very busy working on getting stuff made up for a show on November 27th.  My wonderful husband and mother have been helping me get all of the stuff ready. 

Hopefully I will have enough of a new product to debut it at this show.  Fingers crossed.  Can’t wait to show you the quilt I am working on as well.

Lexi did wonderful during her surgery and is recovering right now. My cousin said she is the bravest person she knows. I agree

 

A Special Quilt for a Very Special Girl November 2, 2010

My cousin and her husband welcomed to the world their first child over 9 years ago.  As Lexi grew, it became apparent something wasn’t right.  My cousin worked with physical and occupational therapists and Lexi underwent testing. 

Muscular Dystrophy was the diagnosis.  Over the years she has dealt with this disease and it’s negative side effects. 

She has made a huge decision for her own health, have a major surgery to help her. 

I’ve made quilts for plenty of kids through Project Linus.  Since Lexi is being brave and undergoing surgery today, I wanted to make something could provide comfort from 1200 miles away. 

Portion of the front.

She likes neon pink and green along with peace signs.  Circles came to mind when I first contacted my cousin about making the quilt. 

Zoom in on the circles.

 

I hope this quilt provides warmth and comfort through a scary surgery for a young girl.
