a bit of this and that

DS finished his pj top this morning. He was so proud of himself. :0) It was so fun to sew with him. We were working on the shirt hem and he stopped sewing, looks at me and says "I love you Mommy". Does it get any better than that? I wonder if he will want to sew again? Here he is with his Power Ranger mask.
I've finished sewing the doll quilt 16 patches. All that is left now is to sew the top together. This has been such a fun little project to start off 2010.
I sit down with this 9 patch quilt nearly every evening to quilt a fan. It's about 1/2 finished now. I'm starting to get excited about quilting the borders. I will try feathers if I can figure out how to mark them.
And to my absolute delight - in my mailbox this morning was a package from Carrie P. full of wonderful quilty things.
She said she was going to send me a button. :0) For someone I've never met in person she really knows what I like. There is a magazine, the bird button (which I just love) a generous handful of vintage buttons, cute pink rick rack wrapped around a wooden spool and a pretty fat quarter. What a lovely surprise!! I'm feeling very spoiled.
Happy Quilting!!

Oh my sweet goodness! The pj's are adorable as he is! What a fun time to spend together.
Love your 16 patches! I can't wait to see the little quilt all put together.
9 patches and fan quilting really go together. It is looking great!!

Seeing your son brought a smile to my face. Reminds when my two boys were little.
You are moving right a long with your projects.
I love surprises so I thought I would surprise you too. Enjoy.
