Hands2Help 2016 Update

Today is the day we are to share an update on our quilts for Hands2Help 2016. I am happy to say that I have one done. Here it is: 


And the back:

The second one is  my slow stitching project for today. I just have the hand sewing on the binding to go and then I will ship them out!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day here! It was warm and sunny. I worked in the morning, but in the afternoon, I sat in the backyard and did a bit of handsewing. Later on, Daughter #1 came over with Big E and Little E. Little E was a wonderful quilt model! 


Big E enjoyed giving little brother a ride in the wagon. 

He also enjoyed a ride from Papa with his pal, Stinky the dog. 

That’s Stinky in front wearing a diaper. Doesn’t your dog wear a diaper? 

I have a pile of QOVs to quilt. This is a look at number two of eight.  

I hope to get this one done and off the frame tonight. Happy Sunday!

    You are so good to do so many quilts for worthy causes. They look great.
    Such sweet and happy faces. Grandchildren are the best!
    First dog I have seen in diapers (real or otherwise), but I once knew an elderly woman that kept a roll of toilet paper by her front door to wipe her dog’s bottom whenever it came inside. : )

  6. You are a busy lady and those are some good looking boys you have there! (No, my dogs don’t wear diapers. Thank God! LOL!)
    I really like that first quilt. It will make someone very happy!
