Please pass the pees

 Little N is learning to read and write. She has recently started to sound out words and read through some of the beginner reading books we have. She is also doing a very good job communicating on paper. She was listening at church, which is not always obvious when her head and fingers and busy coloring. The pastor told everyone to "Pass the peace!" and we all stood up to shake hands with our neighbors. She decided that she wanted to write it down after taking a moment to sound out the words and the back of the prayer request form served her purpose. She wrote it down on three different sheets before I realized what she had done and started to pass notes in church.

 Pees be wif you.

 And also with you. Love you, Little N.

A finished Quilt!

My first quilt!

The quilt began as a pack of puppy dog quilt squares I picked up off of a clearance rack with the intent to practice quilt squares I had learned in an introductory quilting class. I liked the way the practice squares came out so much that I wanted to put them into a quilt. I picked up some complementary fabric once I heard that a friend of ours had a baby boy. I then opted to applique the baby's name on the center square. The final product looks more like a scrap quilt with a puppy theme for baby Kyle.

This quilt was fun to make and I hope baby Kyle enjoys the puppy dogs.
