weekend sewing

As I mentioned previously the kids are away and I have been working a bit of extra at the hospital (lots of babies and mamas to care for).  Camp care packages have been mailed, and  I did manage to find time to make a little something for my sweet niece's 1st birthday.



 Miss Hen and her chicks!  So stinkin' cute! From Amy  Butler's Handmade Beginnings, I love her style and this toy couldn't be more perfect for a child this age; little velcro wings on the baby birds that attach to mama behind her wings!  Melt my heart I say!

Of course when you are one opening a bunch of gifts is of little to no interest.  I think the highlight of the day for this little gal was sitting and playing with gravel rocks!  I was inspired for future craft ideas and reminded just how beautiful these little beings are s I watched her pick up one rock at a time and carefully place it on onto one of the walkway pavers. So much learned from such simplicity  Oh I do love this little girl and cherish having her in my life.

How was your weekend? Linking with the lovely Amanda.
