Megan's quilt

My sister Megan has always loved a similar quilt that I made for myself. She says she wants to steal it every time she visits. SO- I decided to make her one for her birthday. I took my quilt to the fabric store and tried to find the exact same fabrics, I managed to find 6, and the rest I had to just find similar ones. I usually don't do presents this large, but being that this year has been a stressful one for the whole family, I wanted to do something a little special this year. She was very surprised and she loved it, that made the whole thing worth it.
If you're wondering, there are 25 different colors. Each square measures about 2 1/2 inches.

snake for tanner and kate

I had the Lamms for Christmas this year, and I tried to think of something I could make with something I already had since we're low on the mula. And then I thought of it: I could make them snakes. I already had teh stuffing and this crazy snake fabric I got on clearance a long time ago. When I was little I asked my mom to make me a snake, I just loved the idea of having a huge long snake, so i thought maybe they would too. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures- so this is all I have from Lizzie's camera. Maybe I should I have her take a picture of the snake for me, it is probably 8 feet long, with eyes and a tongue, and then I made Kate a momma and baby snake- probably 1 foot long, and then half a foot long. They love stuffed animals (especially Kate) - so they loved them!
