Alyssa's Pinwheels Quilt

This is a Stack-n-Whack quilt I made for my little girl this year. Well, I should say I started it last year and finished it this year. LOL. The the pinwheels were made from one fabric with rows, each pinwheel is different. The background fabrics were given to me as a birthday gift from Mary Lou Weidman. Thanks Mary Lou! The quilt sashing was machine quilted by my good friend Jerry Vliet and I hand quilted the pinwheels and lettering. I attached little yoyo's with buttons to the center of the A's in her name. My little girl just loves her quilt and that makes mommy very happy :-). She always makes sure she tells everyone "That's my quilt" or "That's Alyssa's quilt". LOL! To my family, Does anyone recognize the night gown she has on? Yes, that was mine when I was little. It always makes me smile when I see her in it. :-) Can you tell it's from the 70's LOL!

Little Cutie!

Thought I would show you a picture of the little cutie I made the baby quilt for. He is so precious and just loves me! LOL.
My Children started school on Tuesday and will be going to their new classes tomorrow. Why so late you ask? Turns out there were over 30 new students show up the first and second day of school and the teachers did not want to place the children in a class and have to change them to accommodate new students like the big fiasco we had a couple of years ago, when they switched my children's classes and teachers 3 times. Absolute chaos! We can thank our wonderful school board for that! They did not want to give our school a full time teacher when we really needed one. Anyway, enough of that. It has been a sunny hot beautiful day today. A great day for hanging laundry out on the line, of which I did a lot of. It's the green way to go! plus, it keeps the house cooler, keeps the utility bill small, keeps the colors bright and keeps the clothes smelling fresh! LOL. Not sure if I can think of anymore keeps right now. LOL!
