{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} ~ May 13, 2012

Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter . . .


I love May because of the prevalence of "Wedgwood Days," which have thankfully been abundant this week!


Girl of the House finished this quilt last week.  She machine pieces but binds and quilts by hand.  She doesn't have a specific baby in mind for this one, so she thinks she'd like to donate it to our local crisis pregnancy center. 

The fabric has a fairy tale theme.  Isn't it adorable?  For the backing and binding, Girl 2 used a pale blue fabric with gold stars.  Very cute!

I'm always happy to see Girl 2 quilting!  I think it's important that young people learn how to do as well as how to think.  Using hands-on skills they have learned gives them self-confidence and a can-do attitude as well as allows them to bless others in tangible ways.  Well done, Girl of the House!
