My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Show and Tell

Kelli is hosting show and tell Friday again

So, here's mine.


Oh where oh where has this summer gone, oh where oh where could it beeeee???

School starts 3 weeks from yesterday. I wanted to finish Gator-boy's baby quilt for him to take to school with him for nap time.



Haha, I haven't worked on it at all this summer. Guess I'd better get cracking!
And as for Sugars' baby quilt? Haven't even bought fabric for that one yet!! Good thing there aren't going to be any more babies. They'd get their quilts as graduation gifts!!!

I love the look of it. I was the same way with Christmas stockings for my grandchildren. What was suppose to be for their 1st Christmas was given by the 3rd!!!

Hope you didn't think me rude...I found it humorous as what is usually in my handbag is a big MESS!! :-)

That is gorgeous!! =) I'm sure you'll finish it before graduation!! Don't feel bad. I started a quilt of different little rectangles for my 13 year old when she was a baby. I just meant it to be a large child size quilt, but I went a little overboard cutting out all the rectangles, and have still been sewing them together for years!! I doubt I'll even finish in time for graduation!!

What an eye-catching quilt. I've been working on a quilt made from my 2 yo's receiving blankets and got in a real hurry to finish before we moved. I made such a mess!! Now I'm spending my crafting time pulling seams. Argh!

MightyMom said...

hello, Jenny!
Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I didn't find a blog link in your profile or I'd have come to visit your place. I HATE to pull seams! And usually unless it's really awful, I just leave it be and call it character! ;-) I kept reminding myself as I made Sonshine's quilt (my first son) that this didn't need to be a masterpiece, it was intended to be peed, pooped, and puked on. Literally loved to bits.
