It's GOLF WEEK finally!

They're here!! Maxey and I went to the airport and picked up Jimmy and James (his Amarillo golfing friends) last night. They're here for A WEEK of golfing! They'll play AT LEAST 36 holes a day all week. What fun! Maxey is thrilled. He looks forward to this week every year. He's spent months planning the golf courses they'll play! They started their day before 6:00 this morning...

Laney's Little Animal Quilt

My granddaughter, Laney, turned 2 on April 21st. I have had an idea for a little quilt using Beanie Babies, so I made it for her.

I appliqued her name on the center square, then sewed the animals on facing the center. I only used the upper half of each of the animals. (If you have a suggestion using 8 hineys let me know!)

I quilted it myself with very high loft batting.

Then I created a matching birthday card.

It was fun! It's always fun creating something for someone you love...and I love her SO MUCH!!
