Olivia's big girl quilt and a couple more geese......











I realized I actually didn't sign up for the "red white and blue" postcard swap so I made a couple more geese cards and worked on my little angels quilt! I think she will just love it. It is pink and has kitties, two of her favorite things. I have the top all pieced together, it is a twin size. I am going to add one more big border all around of the fabric in the background with the flowers and then the cat fabric is going to be a pillow sham. I will probably quilt it Sunday evening after work. I saved some fabric so when she comes up she can make a doll quilt to match. She loves her baby dolls, and especially her stuffed animals. She is going to be six tomorrow! It is hard for me to believe..Seems like my baby (her mom ) was just six....She and Daniel, my grandson have been scrapbooking, painting, sewing and making collages with me since they each were two. Olivia actually is an artistic little thing. She sits on a stool at my cutting table and works away. She also doesn't lose interest until her project is done. Last time they were here. she was working on a painting and her mom called in to see what she was doing... she hollered back,"just a minute mama I am creating art."! I thought that was so cute. Now on to my cats antics, which aren't so cute ...Straight out I'll give it to you...He is a cold blooded killer! I just recently started letting him outside because my kitty before him got killed by coyotes, but this was before we moved to a better place with out the coyotes...Well, Thomas has decided to bring me live things, in the house and kill them in front of me....so far there has been a bird, a huge mouse and today a snake which I didn't find amusing. Cooper the wonder dog, full of courage hides behind me and shakes. All 130 lbs of him! What is this need to kill things in front of me.?...I decided from now on, the screen is shut on the slider...He puts one thing in my bed, the cat is gone! I swear! Anyway, I work the next few days and then hopefully my daughters and the kids will be here for the Fourth of July....It is one of our favorite holidays so I am crossing my fingers!!!!!!!!

Nice job! She is going to love it! My daughter is very into tucking in her animals too. I should probably make doll quilts as I can actually finish those. :)
