"You Shine Like the Moon "

"You Shine like the Moon " yes that is what my granddaughter Elise thinks anyway . I was a little under the weather on the weekend and my granddaughters decided to make me get well cards and Elise who is four made this card for me.
Do you see it written at the bottom of the card , oh and the whole envelope was filled with colorful sprinkles and she wanted to know if I spilled them all over my bed :-) So sweet . You can't see it here , but along the right hand side she wrote open mine next , I guess she was assuming I would open Nila's card first .
This is Nila's card with the funky little faces as explanation marks , they are both so creative.  It sure made my day when Chad dropped these off to me yesterday on his way to the airport . I asked Chad what Elise meant by here little quote and he said he had no idea , she is unique .
 I want to show you my cottage quilt as it is now , I am on the last row of cottages
This was the first block I made which was for January 2012 , then you can see February next to that one and so on , I will just have the top border to do once I finish with the houses . I have learned a lesson, it is not a good idea to hand quilt anything that has been machine appliqued with steam a seam or such a product , not that easy to quilt through .
I will also share my little tea project , well two actually . First is the project for our tea room at the quilt show on June 15th ,just a little table mat nothing large .
I used the free pattern that Debbie Kravtovil shared for the tea pot , I loved the shape of it , I also used a vintage napkin for the table cloth under the teapot and cup ,  I made a similar project in a mugrug size as a gift for my friend Annette for her birthday and also one for my Mom for Mothers Day so she could have a special mat for her lunch but I neglected to take a photo of that one .
Same teapot pattern just downsized , fun to make .
Time to link up with the Needle and Threadnetwork for WIP Wednesday , be sure to stop by and see what everyone is up to this week and thanks for stopping by .
