Oh Yeah!

**Edit** I did not explain this very well. THe kit is what I got from Elizabeth and I pulled the finished pics off of her blog.

Sorry. I have not made the quilty cuteness, yet. But I did teach Ella how to embroider and sew last week. She made an apron for a present for her teacher and emboidered a bear on teh pocket since her teacher collects Boyd's Bears.

I have been enjoying getting back into sewing lately. Of course my obsessive personality tells me that if a little sewing is good, then 200 sewing projects will be even more dandy.

I really need to tell that obsessive side to shut it's mouth!

But since I am also scared to spend too much money I have been drooling over everyones wonderful sewing blogs hoping they would have contests. And then one of my all time favorites had a contest. Elizabeth at oh fransson. And OH baby, does she make great stuff. So of course I entered. And then like a miracle. She drew out my name and sent me this:

Now, what is this you are asking yourself? It is a kit to make this:

Oh yeah, I am loving me some baby giraffe quilt. Bring on summer, cause I know what I am going to be doing. Now go and visit her sight cause it has all sorts of amazing tutorials!

That quilt is SOO cute!!! I need to get my sewing machine out and start making stuff!! And the AR thing was bad- Ella shoulda got something special! I think kids do better when pushed by other kids! Make it a contest or rivalry and they really get into it!! Thanks for helping me with the car situation!! I was hoping they'd have a change of heart too!!

OMG! That is so beautiful. I feel envy creeping up on me. I cannot sew. The last time I tried my stitches were SO crooked. Great job!
