July 20 was my first practice day with Mallorie. I have had to change my sleeping schedule so I will be able to watch her. Here is pics from that day. She is such a cutie!
I also babysat her today. I will be doing three days a week for nine hours a day. I hope I can manage!

Granddaughter Kassy

This Tuesday and Wednesday my granddaughter spent the night. She is 12. We spent the time sewing. She made a quilt with batting from a charm square pack called It's a Hoot from Moda. I put up my design wall so she could organize the squares how she wanted them. She then sewed it together and then bagged the top and back and batting. I helped stitch in the ditch for her. She gave it to her cousin Mallorie.

Another birthday present made

 Here is a bag for another birthday girl in my mini group. We are going to have a party this month for two ladies. It was made using the Simplicity charm pack from Moda.
 This is a crazy quilted shoe pin cushion for her too!

Charity sewing

This is a quilt that the six ladies in my mini group made for an auction to benefit the breast
cancer wing of a local hospital. We each hand
appliqued the flower blocks and machine
pieced the the other blocks. One lady put it
all together and another quilted in on her
I also made a stuffed monkey to send to Australia to some ladies making and accepting "huggles" for children in Ethiopia.
