I have the most wonderful next door neighbor you could ever ask for. You know one of those neighbors you just totally click with, that you totally trust your kids with (actually, sometimes I think they might be in better hands in her care than in my own) which is made even more awesome by the fact that her 3 kids match-up perfectly age-wise with my youngest three. For my birthday this year she brought me Ceviche which I think is my new favorite food. She's from Ecuador originally but married an American after coming to the States to do graduate work in English. And she just had her fourth boy. So it was time to make her a quilt.This one was made all from my stash. Love that. Really subtle colors. Forgot to take a picture of the back which is a really soft green polk-a-dot.
I love throwing chenille into baby quilts. This one washed-up really soft and cozy.And speaking of backs, look what happened to me when I took the kids to the park today. Have you ever had a tan line from your pony tail? So attractive. And the irony, I was reading an article about skin-cancer when I got it. Oh the guilt. Time to break out the sun screen!!
