A week....really.....

A whole week went by without a post?  Really?  What's the deal here, anyway?  Well.....these are pictures of our Miss Ellie's Excellent Second Birthday Party Adventure!  She's the daughter of our youngest son, Dave and his wife Nikki. (Dave's the one who just got his master's degree with a 4.0 average in December and a job he starts this week at Division of Vocational Rehabilitation in Bellevue, says the proud momma!)  Okay....back to the week. I needed to finish this little sundress that matches the hat I showed you a couple of weeks ago.  I knew that with all of the excitement of a birthday party, I wouldn't get Miss Ellie to model for me. Sew, we'll have to be content with this picture until Nikki can get a better one.  The fabric is from the Riley Blake Ladybug Garden line and the hat is a Kwik Sew pattern and the dress from a McCall pattern.  Both are easy peasy to make.  Oh....and then Friday night I found the cutest flower sunglasses to complete the ensemble!  This last picture is her eating birthday cake with her butterfly spoon and fork off of the butterfly plate her Grandpa John (aka the retired guy) found for her!  Oh...and do you recognize the bib?  It was a fun day yesterday that I got to enjoy thanks to Harriet and Linda who held down the fort for me.

Things have been humming along at the shop.  The next big thing on the radar is the Western Washington Quilt Shop Hop in June.  The first fabric shipments will start to arrive in a week or so....that means cutting for our nearly 2,000 kits to give out for the Hop.  In the meantime, I am sewing binding on my Urban Abacus project that Sharon (Grass Roots Quilt Studio) beautifully quilted for me.  I got the binding on the runner Jan made from the American Patchwork and Quilting project too.  Going to have fun thinking of new *stuff* to do around the shop in the next few weeks, as well as going to Quilt Market in Portland, OR the middle of May!

Okay....got some paperwork and binding calling my name.  Have a lovely Sunday!
