it is big -almost 15″ tall, and I reused some old old jeans from when the kids were little-er….

For Dad’s birthday, I collected outlines of hands from Dory, kids, kids’ spouses, grandkids, and kids’ and grand kids’ significant others. After machine stitching the hands, I added stitched names and put them into a grid with “bow-ties” in the corners. The backing is a lightweight chambray and the whole thing is quilted between the blocks and around the triangles. I have developed more dexterity with the presser foot and speed control, and had lots of time to listen to ebooks and music!
Who could resist these little wool felt baby slippers? I made a couple for a baby shower last week, and, between large projects, decided I needed some instant gratification! Now, when I hear about a new little one, I will have the present all ready to go!
