I can't believe it but the quilt is done with 36 hours to spare before Aryanna's birthday party! It's the first one I have made without the aid of a quilt panel in the center and I absolutely loved doing it! I want to make more ... hubby just laughed at me ... he just doesn't understand ...
So, armed with a Scrappy Sherbet pattern, endless help from Auntie Janet and a great binding tutorial, I set out on my first quilting adventure less than 3 weeks ago ... this is the final result.
I have also been busy this week getting ready for her 4th birthday party on Saturday. This is the first year she is inviting friends and the first year that her Grandparents, who are Missionaries in SE Asia, are able to be physically present for a birthday. It will be a big day for her and I am trying to make it really fun. We are doing a Poodle theme and I made pink hairbows as gifts for all her friends (and little sister too) and a green and white one to match her new birthday outfit. Aryanna and I came up with a poodle puppet craft, a pin the nose on the Poodle game and some coloring pages. Tomorrow I will make the cake and pinata if I have the time. Look for more photos tomorrow. Right now I am heading to bed!
