Sewing and Sweeties

I finished May from Ellie's BOM and it is hanging....if only for part of the month. It's my birthday month, so had to get this one finished and up.


This is a girl's quilt-to-be cut and ready to start sewing. I'm not sure about the colors...I am bad at picking out what should go with what. I have seen so many stunning and cute quilts that had fabrics in them that you never would have thought could go together, so I am venturing out a little. I knew I wanted it colorful....that it will be!
My third level of projects is something that I thought was the cutest thing I had ever seen...at the time....I still love the idea and need to cut this and put it together. It is small so it shouldn't take too long. I LOVE these fabrics....Simplicity by Moda....the colors and the softness....yummo!!

Yesterday Grandpa and I went to watch our granddaughter, Hannah, perform in her first grade talent show. This first grade teacher does this every year for her students...it is her tradition. The kids were so cute. They did cheerleading, jumproping, teaching us a sport, magic, reading a book, and Hannah's singing. I don't remember the song title...it was short and cute. I give her a lot of credit for doing this by herself.....a cappela I might add! This is her sister Samantha, in kindergarten, posing for Grandma's camera. They got to come and watch.


And this is Hannah.....good job, kiddo!
