This quilt was sent to Colorado, to bundle up my wonderful friend's sweet little baby. She was my first friend in Jr. High. Isn't that neat?! God knew I needed a friend, and He sent bubbly Lindley my way. We've been friends ever since, even though I moved away 3 years after we met.
Lindley picked out this fabric, and the design of the quilt, and I sewed it up. I used the "quilt as you go" method and am in LOVE with that method. I don't think I ever want to make a quilt the traditional way again!
This little taggie went to my friend from college, for her new little one. Again, God knew I needed a friend, as I was new to town, and he sent bubbly Heather my way. Hmmmm.....I'm seeing a trend here. I guess God uses bubbly, outgoing people to pull me out of the shy zone I often fall into by default.
ANYWAYS, Heather now has 2 girls. She and her husband have an amazing testimony as to how God has grown their family by His mercy and grace (go here to read about it). They just adopted their 2nd little girl, and I wanted to make miss Truly something. I know Heather likes vintage prints, and these prints are legit vintage from Scrap in Portland (thanks Cheri!). I had just enough little precut triangles from a grab bag to make this little taggie.
And lastly, I attempted sewing for sale. The order was for 3 doll diapering sets in pink and purple. Each set has a changing pad, 10 cloth wipes (which go in a little box), and 3 diapers. I'm glad to have this order done, and glad that I tried sewing for sale (since everyone tells me I should), and glad that I learned a valuable lesson from the experience.......I do NOT have time to sew for sale! :) Thank goodness this order was for a friend who gave me nearly a full year to fulfill it. No joke! She saw the sets I made Felicity's friends for last Christmas, and asked if I'd be willing to make her 3 sets for this Christmas. Thank goodness for the long time frame!
I think I better just stick to sewing for my family and for gifts. :)
