Thanks Nikki, I used McCall's pattern #M5416 (toddler's 1-4), vw.E. I lined the dress for a little more body. The flowerpot pockets are also lined, and I drew them myself. Stem and leaves are cotton print, the leaves are not turned under so that they look a little bit "weedy". The ribbon is just looped back and forth to look like petals, and the flower center is an upside down yoyo. The little girl I made it for is the daughter of a young woman that I used to babysit! Now this young woman has her own green houses and gardening business called, Crazy Daisies! So this was a fun and special dress to make.

Nikki, your little Minnie is a cutie! I have a little one too, she is a 13 year old Chihuahua/dachshund who loves snuggling in any blankie she can! I'll have to post some pics of her (and my quilts) when I get a chance.

Thank for the reply to if my site was visable out there in netland. I finally found it myself and have received a note from two others. This is fun. Glad to have you as my friend Nikki. I just so enjoy the quilting. Today I'm trying to hand quilt a project that needs to go to class for show and tell this Saturday. It is a Jo Morton basket pattern. I love it. Mary Jane

That's so neat that you thought about OSU! To be honest I wish I had gone somewhere else because they don't have education as a major anymore so getting my teaching certificate is turning out to be a pain. Hopefully it will work out. Yeah I rarely see Trolls anymore-that's why I was so excited to see your fabric!

nikki-thank you for the comment! I went to the huge quilt show in Columbus, Oh with my mom and fell in love with the fabric, I bought it and used a really simple pattern to make the quilt! I've made a couple more quilts that I need to post pictures of, but I love love your work! So many different projects! I especially like the Troll fabric....that is my rookie name in band. I collect little trolls :-)

You've made me feel so much better about her career choice. She's not the type to work with small children so I think that's why high school appealed to her. She loves chemistry but doesn't want to work in a lab all day so I think that's how she came up with teaching. She goes to UMass so she's basically a chemistry major until her junior year when she starts in with all her education requirements. She's actually thinking of staying an extra year and getting her master's degree and that way she'll done with school for once and for all! We'll see! By the way, all your quilt pictures make me want to quilt even more!

Nikki,
Thank you for the kind words for my quilt pictures. I love to hand quilt although it does take forever. The One Block Wonder was so much fun. You just don't know what you're going to end up with so it was fun to see the quilt progress. I was looking at your pictures and just love all the items as well as the quilts you've made. You have made so much! I have the same pattern as your tote bag but I haven't made it yet. I've been so busy with the holidays but do hope to get back into doing some quilting everyday! Are you a teacher? My daughter is in college and wants to be a chemistry high school teacher. Do you enjoy it? Rosemary

Hi Nikki, the pattern is Bow Tucks Totes. I really enjoy making them.

Good luck with the new teaching job! I teach a grade 1,2 loop, which means I have the same class for 2 years. Let me know if you need any good ideas,maybe I can inspire you. K can be pretty challenging. How many students will you have and is it half or full day?
My quilt time is limited during the school year, but I find time to make smaller things like bags and I am very active in my local quilt group which meets twice a month. Show and tell each time is something I look forward to. We have about 100 members and they are always showing off gorgeous work!
If you ever make it to Maine we'll have to meet.
Happy New year and good luck with the class new friend!
Let me know how it is going in a few weeks!!

My husband's cousin lives in Frisco, but I've never been there. I do know where Plano is. What brought you to Texas? I just moved to San Antonio last year from Lubbock, TX where I lived for 19 years. I'm originally from California. I have a brother who lives in Phoenix. If you ever get a chance to make it to San Antonio - I'd be happy to take you to all the local quilt shops. Nice talking to you.

Nikki, I love your projects - girl - you are creative - I love the totes - I just ordered a charm tote pattern from Connecting Threads. I love small projects to give away too. I found the "scrap sack" pattern at a fabric store in Montana during the summer and made some to give away to sewing friends. Another quilting friend showed me the coaster idea...lol I know finding your blog was meant to be. Marianne

Thanks, this fellla was one of those side-trips taken during a family vacation. You know the kind, your driving along and see a sign - Ostrice Farm ahead....we bonded for a few minutes and he is!

Thanks for the info, I will check Hobby Lobby. There are actually 2 of them near me, and maybe one of them has some. I always forget to check out their fabric when I'm there because I'm usually shopping for scrapbooking supplies!
And I wouldn't think of asking you to give up your stash, but thanks for the offer.
Kelly
