Precious Moments Start


This is progress after 28 hours of stitching. I am doing this for a little girl at Love Quilts who has Precious Moments as theme of her quilt.

My sister was in town this past week. We did some shopping. Plus she chose a baby piece for me to do for her daughter Heather. The baby is due end of next month! In fact it's due on our mom's birthday. So I said either the baby can be born April 26 (due date) or May 1 as no one in our family has a birthday in May. I don't want her to go to far over as she has a really bad back. So guess what my next piece will be. I don't think I'm going to get the Owl done. I just have a head start for the next child that wants Realistic Birds. Besides the boy the owl was going to go to really wanted Eagles and Hawks and that is what came in for him so the Owl would be out of place.

I think spring might be coming. It's cold today in the 20's but sun is out so not bad. Tomorrow and Monday is 30's then a few days next week 40's before going back to 39. But we'll take it. We missed 2 big snow storms as we were just a little too far north for them. We felt bad for those who got it but didn't shed any tears that we didn't get it.

Well, until next time Happy Stitching!

What a cutie she's going to be. I love the PM designs, so sweet. Your lions turned out adorable, they'll make a wonderful addition to a quilt. Good luck getting the piece for Heather done, sounds like you're going to be busy.

The PM piece looks great. I like the idea of backstitching as you go.

Your PM girl is just adorable. I think it is such an excellent service you are doing stitching these cute squares for such a good cause.
