A Little "Lovie"
One of my passions is to sew, and especially to quilt! When Anne was a young girl, I tried to encourage her to share my passion of stitching, but she chose other outlets for expressing her creativity. So, this post is to celebrate Anne's request to take needle in hand and create a "lovie" for a little sweetheart about to be born! Anne came here on a Saturday with a sewing project in mind...a sweet, little place-on-the-floor quilt for a baby girl to lay on comfortably. It must be fluffy, soft and small. (She found her idea from the cool book, Last-Minute Fabric Gifts by Cynthia Treen.) Anne carefully "auditioned" fabrics for just the right combination for the Nordlund baby. Then, she measured, rotary cut, ironed, sewed, and hand stitched away! Knowing Anne, this is a true labor of love!
