    Some of the quilting and sewing I've done during my time off.

    My DGD got a new bed at her other grandmother's that is a full size. Of course she needed a new quilt from Granny (she has just started calling me this, who knows why). I found the yellow eyelet and couldn't resist a new dress for her. The first picture is the front of the quilt, then the back, then a close up of the special fabric for the blocks I found. Then is her new dress.

    She is one lucky little girl to have such a nice Granny. Love that cute little dress. That's what my kids called my mom. Peggy

    I love your quilt and would give anything to be able to sew a dress like that for my DGD! I'm trying to learn. You're a wonderful Granny!

    Love the quilt, and the little dress is just adorable.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
