Thought I would join in and link to Taryn's online quilt show. I just finished this little quilt using some of the flying geese I had left over from October Surprise. Remember how I thought I needed 192 more flying geese? Well, I don't know how I was so off. I only needed four more. I guess this is why I tend not to figure out how many I need of anything in advance and wait till I get to the end and just make more. I had 188 leftover so I made four little quilt tops and this is the first one finished.
Here it is acting as a lap quilt for Addy. I dug Addy and her bed out of my daughter's closet. I think I'll keep her out for a while. She brings back lots of good memories of reading American Girl books with my daughter who is now on her own adventure in New Zealand. My daughter is working on organic farms and meeting people from all over the world through the WWOOF program. My little girl who has only known suburban living and spent the last couple of years as a vegetarian (though not strict - every once in a while a Chick-fil-A sandwich would call her name) now knows how to pluck a chicken! I get an email or two from her every week and my son showed me photos on her Facebook page. She is having a wonderful time with the Kiwis!
Enjoy the weekend and remember to hop over to Taryn's.
