Secret Revealed

The circle of flying geese block that I made last week, now has a new home. I turned it into a pillow and gave it to my intern today. Bailey's last day with us at work was today. :-( I was very sad by this as she has been a wonderful intern.Since she is a newlywed, has a new apartment, and new beginnings, I wanted to give her something to remember us by, but would also be extremely useful...I hoped she would like it, as she is secretly an Etsy junkie :-).

I was inspired to make this block when I saw it in KarrieLynn's pinwheel quilt at I love it, and can not wait to make more of these beautiful blocks. The color inspiration came from Bailey herself, as her wedding colors were green, yellow and pink. She is in love with the color pink, and I can't say that i blame her.

She absolutely loved the pillow (my heart jumped for joy). I even made the meaning symbolic to her life at this moment. It was a joy to watch her grow, and I know she will make a wonderful therapist. We had a lot in common, and it was a thrill to get to know her. You all may hear more about her in the future as she has confessed that she wants to learn a hobby, and sewing is one of her interests! I love this!! My grandmother is above smiling as we speak.

As far as other sewing goes this week, I have not been about to get in the sewing mode much this week. My oldest daughter Megan turned 3, and that has preoccupied my time.

I was able to cut out my Christmas quilt. It is a pattern by Swirly Girl Designs called Perfect Ten, and I am using Kate Spain's 12 days of Christmas fabric. I just love her fabrics and can not wait to get my hands on Fandango.

Well, I believe I have rambled on too much.
Happy sewing and Many blessings
