Little Notebooks

I talked about these little notebooks on my personal blog, but wanted to highlight them here as well.
These were made as Christmas gifts for my two older girls. The notebooks are for their library totes, which they take to church.
Mini-me also requested one for her teacher, which I didn't take a picture of, dang it.

I have one in my diaper bag. They are great for writing down directions, or for small shopping lists.

Family Quilt

One of the fun projects I completed this holiday season was this family quilt. The mom, Jessica, wanted something special to give to her in-laws. Each child decorated their own block with fabric markers. Jessica and her husband did the center block. She asked me to use very neutral colors, since her mother-in-law was especially partial to earth tones. I found some really great shades of brown and cream, framed each block, and then created the two side blocks. The quilting is just straight line quilting, so as to not take away from the creativity of the individual blocks.
