I made a change of sewing plans!

When I was over at some friends house the last weekend with my sister for an unbelievable evening of visiting (we laughed so much!), their 3 little girls had the living room all setup as a nursery for their bitty babies. It was so cute I couldn't resist making them some doll quilts this week while I was here. I delivered them today and they just LOVED them! You should have seen the 3 yr old rocking her baby all wrapped up in its new quilt (in the 90 degree weather)! Anyway, I thought they turned out pretty good considering I only had my featherweight with me so layers of flannel and batting didn't feed through the foot easily! Each one was slightly different so they could tell them apart, but alike enough so there were no fights!

Also made a few more fabric purchases. Last year my mom asked if I would make a quilt for my brother, which he LOVED. Well his wife has been joking with her all year "when am I going to get my quilt?"! So we went shopping for a pattern and fabrics for her this year. We decided on a pattern called Kitty Kitty (I have no idea why) and I guess she loves lavendar. So we got all this beautiful lavendar fabric for it. I also found some adorable christmas border fabric for some table runners for xmas gifts!




My sister and her family got home last night and today we took my mom to a new candlelight dinner theater to see Oklahoma. It was wonderful and the food was just as good! I had never gone to a dinner theater so that was fun. And of course Oklahoma just makes you tap your foot! The talent was amazing! The 3 of us had a wonderful time - yes we kept husband and kids at home! This was a girls day out! I"ll be sad to leave on Tues! It has been a very relaxing week!
