Wares from art

I have a little friend who asked me to make him something. Actually, what he asked was for me to make a shirt just like the one he was wearing at the time. As you might have guessed it was a fancy screenprinted T with lots of details and lettering swirling across the front. "Oh no! I can't do all that!", I thought. Then I remembered that this kid is a great artist. So I told him to give me a design and I'd do my best to turn it into a shirt.

He gave me the drawing: A super-fast race car! (I like it already.)














I scrounged through my scraps. (This is why I keep baskets of these all over the room, dear.)















I cut out the pieces. (Lots of details to keep track of.)















The finished product!

Two

I was supposed to be quilting with a friend today. But, due to my under-the-weatherness we had to cancel. Nevertheless, there's always SOMETHING to sew!














These two blankets will be flying over the ocean to the twin boys we're hoping to adopt this year. I hope they like them!
