My oldest nephew is a soldier who is deployed to Iraq. His wife is waiting for him to return in Texas. In December, their first child was born, a baby girl.
M. has loved Home Ec. this school year. She wanted to make a baby quilt for our newest family member. We bought a kit at Joann's called Fairy Beary. I coached her on what to do, and helped with a few little things, but it is mostly her work. The kit had some challenges in it - stretchy velour type fabric, and sheer, shiny pink fabric that tends to ravel. I think she did an excellent job for her first quilt, don't you?
We will have to wrap it up and send it to Texas as soon as we can!
