Progress on precious days off

 This is a little baby quilt, made from the same fabrics and style as the baby's dad's quilt.  So guess what?  The original quilt was made for my son....and his wife is pregnant.  I am going to be a Gramma for the first time!!!  So"Little Man" will have an identical quilt, just smaller, as his daddy.  They are big UT fans, so I have used UT fabrics, left over from my son's quilt.  (University of Texas)
 The hospital gift shop has a wonderful director, who comes up with the cutest window scenes!  She was selling some of her props, and among these was this little child's rocking chair.  Twenty bucks later, it is mine.  It is so tiny and cute!
 I have made some progress on this quilt, slowly.  I would do this quilt differently if I had designed it....but I am well on the way and it is rolling right along!  It is kind of hard to find a rhythm to sew!
Bright yellow twinkling stars!






I hope you have had some sewing time, just for you, today!!
