I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!!
Our holiday was full of deviled eggs, chocolate eggs, plastic eggs and ham.
The time I set aside for working on my quilt was quickly diverted to my girl! Now, I have to tell you that she takes her sewing very seriously.....
and stays very focused on her task.
(Don't worry, the needle has been removed to keep those little fingers safe!)
Last week Joan (wishes true and kind) had shared the idea with me of putting up a design wall for Isabella. All I can say is...thank you, thank you, thank you Joan. I initially liked the idea because of the cuteness factor, but as soon as it was up I loved the idea because of how much Izzy enjoyed her new found creative outlet.
She took to it immediately and surprised me with how long she was fully content designing.
(try not to gasp too hard over the fact that she has some of my little folks scraps, she was very gentle with them)
She spent her morning choosing fabric, pressing fabric, and putting it on her design wall...all with such intense purpose and determination. I loved every second of it!!
I made her fabric holder this weekend using the kidlet pattern (by JC handmade found here). I altered it in size then added straps to hang off the back of her chair, it works perfectly.
I couldn't resist making a second one for her coloring books....and to be honest, I think there will be a kidlet hanging from every door knob in my house by the end of the week! It is the perfect size and remedy for those miscellaneous things that really have no home.
