The Cape Finish

I was able to finish stitching The Cape today. I love how it turned out! It is so pretty :) The waves are my favorite part of this one.



I've been working away at my Star Lights quilt, it has required A LOT of chain piecing. Jessie has been my little helper and cutting the threads for me as I sew. When you have 400+ chain pieces going on, that is quite a big job for a little kiddo, she was happy to help though. :) Thanks Jess.

Also, Jessie got a haircut. She has such pretty blonde hair, when they cut over 6 inches off it about made me cry, it looks cute short, PLUS we won't be having a fight every morning when I am combing the knots out of it. So, it is a good thing I suppose.

That looks great! You are so talented.

Was Jessi ok with the haircut idea? Zoie threw a fit while back when we mentioned the idea, but she got over it.

Love it! And what a little cutie! (my niece has long blonde hair and I think it's only a matter of time before she needs to cut it just a little shorter too!)

Beautiful finish on the Cape! I really love the colors! How fun to be working on a quilt at the same time. Your daughter looks like she is having fun too. I'm all ready to begin McMary's and I thought I'd try to do some work on it today!

I just love your Cape piece. My favorite are the waves as well. In fact, that's one of the pieces on my wishlist. You did a great job on it, and you stitched it so fast!

Jenna said...

Jessie's new haircut looks beautiful, and so is she! She just looks like such a cute little rascal. :) Congrats on finishing The Cape! I need to add the photo gallery to OSL so that you can upload your photo to share. I think I like the buildings in the background the best. They remind me of where we stay when we go to Disney.
