Yet another one...


Are you sick of my framed monogram letters yet?! My daughter was invited to a friend's birthday party and so of course I made yet another letter. I figure that I can only do it once per friend, unless, like the friend's mother pointed out to me today at the party, I just continue on with the names adding a letter per year. It was pretty funny! I had asked the mother earlier this week what colors her daughter would like. She said, "anything that your daughter would pick would be great!" So my girl picked two fabrics, and I think she did well in her choices. She also chose what kind of quiting I should do - she requested hearts and flowers. Perfect! Well the quilting isn't, but the theme is! Best of all, it didn't cost me a thing since I used what I already had, including the frame. Plus when you make a present, you're pretty much guaranteed that there will not be any duplicates!

If I were a young girl again, I'd love one. In fact, I'd probably be thrilled even at my age.

A sweet "K" - you're daughter did a great job picking out the fabric and you did great with everything else!

Brenda said...

I really like it, you wouldn't want to make one for my baby would you.haha The poor boy is 6 months and I still haven't gotten his name yet to put in his room,so One big Letter would be so much better then bare walls! I'm just saying if you ever find yourself bored ,longing for something to do!
Ok ,now that we see what being up all night and sitting here at 5:00 while the baby plays,does to a person. I'll let you go !
