I found this post I had started in late April and never finished so I'm posting it today as a preview of the blog I'm working on that show my projects - from these fabrics and others:

I've got several things planned for the near future and this is one I'm really looking forward to.
There's a special little girl who will be 2 in July and guess what (who) she really loves. You're right, it's Minnie Mouse - in red, not pink (a girl after my own heart!).
This little lady is my almost granddaughter - I got to travel with my best friend, her grandmother, from Texas to Marystown in Newfoundland Canada when she was born. Her parents are there for a while for work and will be back in Texas for her birthday. I made a pretty pink quilt when she was born so I'm going to follow it with a cute red, black and white Minnie quilt now that she's getting big. Watch for more later - I designed the quilt in EQ 7.

Speaking of grandchildren . . . .  I'm going to be a GRANDMOTHER in September! I can't 
believe that I haven't shared that before! This is some fabric that my daughter-in-love picked out with her mom to make a quilt for the new one (her mom is one of my quilting friends and will make the simple quilt they picked). It has the colors that she wants to use- gray, teal blue, and lime green - and her theme is zoo animals. She is keeping things generic because they are not finding out if it's a boy or girl.
I bought this striped fabric from the same line to  make a skirt for the crib and the gray for a sheet (maybe).

The last fabric I'm showing today is one for a quilt for a special young man - he's my oldest son. Several years ago when I was just starting to quilt, I made a quilt for my niece and took it to her shower. He was there and said "now I know where I stand: you've never made me a quilt". (That's not true but that's a different story!) Anyway, since then I have been looking for the perfect quilt for a young man in his late 20's. This is the fabric I have collected over the course of a year. 

Look for more about these fabrics in the next post, hopefully soon!
Have a great day!
