Helping Hamsters Recycle

So, the new QSnap quilt frame works well, and I was able to get the two baby quilts finished this week! One is for my friend Lori, and the other for Corring. They turned out cute, and I put thicker batting in them so they are nice and cuddly. I was good even and used quite a bit from my stash to make them, go me! I am getting better about doing that. I like making baby quilts pretty big, so that they can be used for a longer time period.
I have 3 more baby quilts to make, so I had better get my act together :) I have two boy quilts, and one girl quilt to do. I have the fabric for them all too, so no excuses.

I’ve been working on Old McMary’s again, not only is there a lot of red, but green too! The big roof needs filled in now :D I think it’s a pretty design, I like it so far. I stitched on it quite a bit the other night while watching The Lord of the Rings, Return of the King. That is an excellent movie :) And long, so I got to stitch a lot LOL!

I’ve started stitching Dani’s NRR last night, there is a drawbridge so far :D

Curren cracks me up, this is a paper he wrote for Earth Day for school.

It says: Earth Day, April 22nd is Earth Day. To save the earth I will help hampsters resikl (recycle).
I thought it was soooo cute. I had to share, I hope it makes you smile too! I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and get to do some sewing or stitching! Thanks for taking the time to visit, I appreciate it :)

Your baby quilts are so nice and I especially like the children that go with it. :)
My good friend will be a 1st time grandma in December so I will be stitching a baby quilt soon. I will 5 months until she learns if it will be a M/F then start sewing.
I love Curren's Earth Day paper~it really did make me laugh. :)
Have a VERY special day tomorrow!

Too cute!! :) I've got a huge collection of those kinds of papers from when my kids were little-so fun to read. And I'm sure the quilt recipients will love them, they look extra cozy and warm.

That is definitely the best and most realistic Earth Day suggestion I've heard. ;)
