I almost lost my mind making this one - kept sewing the flying geese on in the wrong direction!! But in the end I think it's very pretty. It's actually one of my favorites, though I tend to think that after every block! These dreamy fabrics would make anything look pretty. I looooooooove them!
Now only three weeks and 6 blocks left!

I really don't have a plan for this quilt yet - sort of making it up as I go, but I love the colors and the whimsical nature of it. I'm just going to cut loys of little 2.5 blocks, and applique some larger ones, and then see how it all fits together.

I've become addicted to searching for the cutest appliques I can find - I'm on a birdhouse kick this morning, but hearts, elephants, sailboats, etc are on the long list. I need a work station with a plugged in printer to print out all the awesome templates I've been finding online and in applique books. Anyway, these birdhouses are awaiting embroidery and some new tennants. Hopefully hubby will bring me some bird templates home tonight from his work printer :)

A pillow for my 6 year old son's sweetheart for Valentine's Day. They've been together since they were 3 in pre-school and still going strong in first grade! These are their hands (and initials on the back.) Hubby rolled his eyes at the idea, but it was well appreciated by its new owner, as I'd hoped :)

For some reason, the pictures are all coming in sideways (can't tell with the dresden plate - which was my FIRST ONE, by the way. I finally bit the bullet to try one) so imagine them all turned counter clockwise 90 degees, please :)
