A little quilt for a special little someone

Here’s something I’ve been working on – on and off- for a few months now. Every time I wanted to work on it, something else would crop up and I’d have to put it away again *sigh*.

Now it’s finished, and I can’t wait to hand it over to the sweet little boy it was made for. Here he is pulling playing with Bear’s hair.November 2011 055 This is Archie’s quilt :o).

I also finished the quilt top for my Mum’s friend in the UK – need to hurry up and quilt it for her :o). I laid it out on the floor and Doug the dog very kindly stepped in to help me…May 2012 095 He held it down for me, then he helped me to fold it…May 2012 096which is not easy for a little doggy whose legs are only about 3” tall lol …May 2012 097  But he gave it his best shot, and was pretty proud of himself even though he couldn’t quite finish the job ;o).May 2012 098 I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!!
