early January Alice sleep over

Alice has been missing from my blog for quite a while..however, she spent the night a while back and played in the scrap bag with the following results:

Alice is now 6 and getting to be quite tall.  Here is a close up of the arrangement:
She did all the cutting up herself..but was not so much interested in the idea of sewing them together.
Also, here is her daddy's baby quilt, all repaired-which went home with her for more fort building fun.
and the pretty faded back side..a pre-quilted fabric ...Nice to know it will now stand up for many more years.  My string quilt is waiting for me to make and attach the binding before I can take a finished photo. And, I have begun working on the applique that is for the new addition on my sidebar-It's All About Me.
I have been knitting too...so despite a busy time at the work mines, I am making time to be creative.

Oh, Cher! Alice is absolutely beautiful!!! I cannot believe how much she has grown up! But guess what? I see YOU in her! The eyes, from within the eyes..oh my..how wonderful! She is truly someone very, very special and I love this photo of her at work!

She is getting tall and I can't believe how long her hair is now! I keep picturing as she looked 3 plus years ago, I guess.

I know you enjoy spending time with her.

She really is growing up! Goodness, it seems like it wasn't all that long ago that we were looking at baby photos! That pre-quilted fabric is sturdy stuff - we have several baby quilts in the family using it and these quilts have lasted for years and through many washes! Now that you have repaired the quilt, I am sure it will last right on into another generation! Cheers! Evelyn

I can remember when she was just a baby. How time flies. I think you're going to have some one to take over your stash!
