Boys, Boys, Boys

We took this picture this summer to show my mother-in-law her 7 great grandsons (soon to be 8), all under the age of 3.   There is only one great grandaughter, Martine , who will be 19 in December.  My oldest daughter, Lindsay is also in the picture with the boys.  Another baby expected in the new year.  Could it be a girl?

This is my youngest son Michael, with our boy dog, Otis. Michael got his motorcylce license figuring it would give me the van to drive as we had to share a vechile while he was home for the summer working.  I wasn't too crazy about it at first but my husband has had a motorcycle for years so what could I say.  He survived and is now back at university.

  I just got this flannel in  and love it.  It's called "Little Friends" and its from Northcott.  They make the   softest flannel and this print is gendre neutral so it works for boy or girl.

New "Folded Hot Pad" pattern

 Debbie Richard's has come up with another folded technique pattern--The Folded Hotpad!  If you have always admired the other designs but didn't want to tackle that much work, here's a nice quick project to complete in an evening.   Pattern - $9.00.
I loved this sailboat fabric when it came in and wanted to do a quilt that would feature this fabric. 
The bright coloured blocks and other nautical fabrics fit right in.  Kit - $99.00 includes pattern.
