This cutie is for the 6"-12" Flickr swap group. The theme was children's literature, and my partner used " The little old lady that lived in a shoe" as her inspiration. I am a shoe lover, so it could not be more perfect.
And this final beauty of a package is from my swap partner through Katy's swapity swap. The fabrics are not only beautiful, but so very soft to the touch. I'm not sure I can cut them up! And, she sent a sweet card, and the loveliest buttons all wrapped in fine ribbon.
I feel totally spoiled today, and after the week I've had....I NEEDED IT! Thank you to each of my swap partners for making my day! Peace be with you.

1. I used flannel on the back. Lovely to snuggle up with, but a pain in the rump to quilt ( says me)
2. I gave myself 36 hours to quilt ( I wrote LIVE LAUGH LOVE around the entire boarder) , bind (hand sew it down ), wash and dry the sucker before I had to put it in the mail.
Yes, I work best under pressure, but The Shmoo started screaming " I don't like GG's Blankie" by the end of the day.
However, it turned out lovely, and I know she will love it...and really that's all the matters!
On to make some stars for the Brush Fire Quilt Project! Peace be with you.

So, I have decided to give away two items in the IMAG's International Stash Busting Giveaway ( that's a mouth full. The first are these 4 half-yard cuts of coordinating fabs. Their cute, cheerful, and scream S-P-R-I-N-G which most of us will have to wait months to actually enjoy. So, tell me what you would use them for, and hopefully you'll win.

I thought losing my job was enough bad news/ drama for one week. However, I was wrong...I " caught" the stomach bug from The Shmoo, and spent 6 hours with my head in the toilet Friday night into Saturday morning. I hate to throw up-I haven't done it since I was in labor with The Shmoo, and I cried about it then. I used words that rarely pass my lips, and forced J to sleep with The Shmoo so that he didn't get sick as well ( and so he did not witness my sprinting from the bed to the bathroom every few moments). Well, as it turns out the little man was not over his bought with the stomach monster. So, I spent last night in bed with him as he threw up on 3 sets of sheets, 2 sets of jammies, and a very tired and weak mama. I had to snap this photo of him this afternoon watching Thomas and resting his " ouchie tummy". He then had a sudden burst of energy and needed to take some pictures. A budding artist maybe?
