Hey there!  Yesterday I finally had a chance to sit and sew — and it felt so good!

The methodical process, of piecing, pressing and making decisions as I work is like magic.  And I never tire of the process.  I know you can relate to that idea.  Now my little ones are gathering around, to ask if they can sew as I pull out my machine.  Yesterday, I had to tell them that I needed to sew, and they would have a chance later this week!  I’m so happy that they are asking though!

This is a commissioned quilt that I’m working on for a new baby.  Actually for now, I’ll be waiting to hear the baby’s name and birthday, so I can embroider the special details into the quilt top, then quilt it.  I decided that I will embroider around the sleeping pixie, in the bottom right of the quilt top, now to find the right shade of purple floss!

The soft colors and cute little pixies, are so sweet for a baby girl.  The top measures 40″x60″, I used 4 1/2″ squares with the border stripe between each row of pieced squares.

Speaking of cuties!  Mine lost her first tooth on Saturday –

Her smile is so forced after showing everyone, she had been working on pulling it out for a couple days.  And was so proud to show off the empty spot!

What are you working on this week?
