    Make a six-year-old smile . . .

    . . . by incorporating her artwork into a quilted project. My great niece made a drawing for me at a family reunion this past August and it inspired me to make a little pillow for her. Her mom says Ruby loves it, and that makes me happy.

    This is it without the pillow form stuffed into it:

    I love the pillow, and boy what a happy smile to go with it. A designer in the making I think.
