May For Me - Day 14
Since my partner has received her quilt, I can show it now. I am really enjoying the Doll Quilt Swap. Sher requested a quilt for her Grand Neice for her new teddy in blues. So another smaller take on the Swoon block with some fussy cut teddies.
And you can't let a special request go un-rewarded. I have made a little doll to go with each quilt sent. So I made Sher a doll - and what dollie doesn't deserve a quilt, so a mini made with the scraps from her grand neice's quilt.
This was my other May quilt - I volunteered to 'double duty' if needed. This is still traveling to Germany so only showing a partial photo as I don't know if Leonie visits my blog. Oh, I hope it gets there safely and soon.
These blocks are for playing with Marcia's Zig Zag Quilt Challenge. This goes so quickly - and I rummaged around in my scrap bins to pull fabrics together. And I used my 3.5" square ruler rather than trim to a 3.25" - just easier for me as I go brain dead with odd measurements. And I am,also, using this for my Color Challenge and FMQ Challenge. **linking up with Patchwork Times on the wall Monday**
This week's 'Summertime Adventures' over at Clover & Violet was an 'out and about' project. They had samples of some little bags for traveling with children. Well, I have a (senior)friend who travels with her 'child' - her little Cock-A-Poo. So I made a little bag for carrying treats, pooh bag, training clicker can snap on the side as well as a clip to attach to her belt or purse, and a double side pocket to carry ID/money while at the dog park. I used a laminate (a first for me) for the lining so the bag can be easily cleaned.
Don't forget it's a check-in day with HANDS2HELP over at Sarah's. You still can get a quilt finished. These are the two quilts I sent off to Em's Scrapbag for Happy Chemo. I have two quilts to mail out to Sarah tomorrow now that they have their new space to store them. Final link up is May 28th for prizes - and there are lots - and quilts should BE AT at their final destinations BY June 8th.

WEEK 3 GIVE AWAY
I have another twin pack of fun. 'Reunion' by Sweetwater and 'Hello Luscious' by Basic Grey. As a comment, I would love to hear how you spent your Mother's Day. Myself, I spent part of the day sewing and part outside in the sunshine prepping flower beds. Then my brother, SIL, sister, Mom and I went out to dinner - Chinese buffet. Then home to cuddle with my furries as they were mad I had left them alone too long.

With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
