Ode to a finished project

I finally finished two projects this last weekend (only because they didn't take that long to begin with although it took me about triple the amount of time it should have) And also here are some other projects that got finished this weekend. I first posted pictures of the fabric for Lexie's graduation quilt on April 29th (I'm not kidding...) And she finally finished it on Saturday! Here she is resting her tired quilting head on the machine for emotional support...And here's the happy quilter with her first ever made-by-her quilt! Congrats lex! It's so darling!Close up of the quiltingAmalie made this out of scraps lying around her house for my bebe...Thanks Amalie!
And last but not least, I made this for the bebe to wear when she goes with me to the studio to choreograph...She's got to fit in with the other dancers!Notice her ballet slipper socks, too! If the thought of putting on a tutu again didn't fill me with dread I'd get our pictures together, but her chubby legs are much cuter than mine!

Memory Board

So it's a really bad picture and I tried to fix it but it still didn't turn out, so this will have to do. It's really fun and easy but make sure you have enough of everything before you start. It's really a pain when you run out of things in the middle of it. It's McCall's Memory Board and I love it.

Hand Towels

I was going to post a picture of the towel I'm almost finished with, but since my camera just died permanently, this picture will have to do. I've been working on these for a while (I'm really slow), but I get really excited about them while I'm working on them. Now they've kind of been put on hold during the semester, but I hope it won't take me too much longer! (Oh, and for those who are wondering who in the world I am, I'm Chelsea's sister-in-law ... thanks for inviting me, Shayla!)
