Dreary monday


leaves flyng  everywhere

Hi friends!
Rainy day!
Look at those leaves flying, it's snowing leaves!!!
Made 3 pillows for 3 more grandsons over the weekend.  They  are very much into sports so these will work.  Now i am going to have to figure out what to make 2 more for some teen age grandgirls.
  My daughter's girl's love their pillows , that i made with a block for a quilt and i may go with that for them!!!
It;s been 50 years since i was a teen girl so i don't know what to make them.
The oldest is into rock star but if i get her that then i will have to come up with the younger one something and i have no idea.    She is 14 years old and is in nothing special at school and doesn't play sports.
I will most likely go with a block .  That wont be their christmas!  They want money so when they get enough they can buy some of those costly games!!!  We can't give the price that  one costs,  so they are learning to save..     Good lesson!!!
Our baby was tiring to eat a piece of felt and not let go of her passy.  They came over to see us last week and we really enjoyed some time with her.  She is the cutest !!!!
Have a good sewing day!  I will!!!
Quilt Happy

Teenagers are always the hardest to buy and make for. I love rainy days they always make for good sewing.

google airplane binders. They are nice for doodling, writing a journal, or just organizing. girls usually love them and they are not hard to make. You can even sew scraps together to make the fabric. they come out so interesting that way.

or how about their initials on the pillows? some fancy trim like feather boa for a froo froo look. or some of those hot crystals for some jewel like bling. or even a pocket.
