Gifts for my sister!

Not a lot of sewing going on here the past couple of days. I have been reading a couple of books and working outside, trying to get everything ready for Winter! You never run out of stuff to do on a farm! But I do love the farm life!

This Saturday is my sister, Chantal's 25th birthday! She is such a sweet girl and we are VERY close. So on her birthday I plan on giving her this quilt! She loves pink and brown and she loved this one when I quilted it, so I have decided it should belong to her.

Chantal's isn't married and doesn't have any children but she does have a poodle that she treats like a child! :) She keeps that dog dressed 24/7 and I swear sometimes I think that dog thinks it is human! :) So I recently quilted a crib size quilt made from leftovers of the big quilt. I practiced a quilting design on it and planned on donating it. But then I thought I would give her both of the quilts....the big one for her and the crib quilt for her dog, Zoey! I think she will get a big kick out of that! As you can see here in the photo they do coordinate nicely.
Probably will not get to sew tonight. Supper is in the crockpot and we are having Pork Chops and Gravy, corn, peas, and cornbread! We need to stack up some more firewood and then I plan on finishing my book up tonight!
Have a wonderful day!

Oh Krisite, she will be tickled "pink" when she sees this brown and pink quilt. It is so pretty - and then when she knows there is one for will get a big hug.

Supper sounds good, can I come and eat too?

The quilts are so pretty! I think that is cute to make a small one also. I am sure Chantel will love it. Zoey will also.
