I love making things for my grand kids!  The tiny pieces and fabrics are so much fun to work with!

.

My daughter gave me this magazine about two years ago.  I’ve looked through it countless times, dreaming planning which projects I was going to make, with what fabric, and for whom.


.

You see the project pictured on the top right?  That’s the one I had picked out for one of my grand kids birthday.  I just thought it looked so cute!

If you’d like to get the pattern, you can find it by clicking here.  I love the website for this magazine!  It has so many ideas, patterns, and helpful tips!  The designer of this project is Jo Carter, and her website is http://www.twoowls.typepad.co.uk.  

.

The instructions are easy to understand and follow.  I must confess that as I pieced the bed, I wondered how this “rectangle” would become a bed, but as I went along, following the pattern, it all made sense and worked perfectly.

I love patchwork quilts, don’t you?

For the mice, I decided to use print instead of solid fabric.  


.

.

It was fun sewing on the tails and working on their faces.  As you can tell, I decided to use a fine-tip permanent marker (instead of embroidery) on the faces.  I was short on time… I had to get this in the mail in time for a birthday surprise!

If you’ve got any projects or magazine clippings filed under “someday”. . .  Choose one and get started!

It’ll be fun!

Happy sewing and a great weekend to you!

If you’re ever in Sarasota, FL . . .

I highly recommend you plan to stop at this restaurant.

I chose the buffet,
Just because I can try all the different
choices.
Everything is homemade,
and you can taste it!!

They also have a beautiful gift shop upstairs with all kinds of items you will just love to look at!
Quilts, one-of-a-kind little things,
And a whole section just for
Vera Bradley items…

This one was my personal favorite,
But I was good and put it back.

The day we were there they had all their Christmas items on clearance…

The displays were so beautiful!
I bought some vintage ornaments that ended up being only $2!!

They also have a “Country Store” section in the front with lots of goodies to take home, like homemade cookies, jams, apple butter, rolls, and so on.

Have I made you hungry??
I am!!

Have a good weekend everybody!!
