I made something....

Well, I kinda got out of my little sewing slump. Started rooting around and found some things I want to do. And actually finished one thing.

I have 3 great grandkids in Minnesota, 1 boy, and 2 little girls. It seems like most of the time the things I enjoy making most are girly stuff. And the boy gets left out. Sooooo, I found out that his interest has went from Spiderman to Legos, and decided to make him a LEGO pillow. His birthday isn't until later in the year, and if he is still into Legos, he will get a crap load of them from me, lol. I eyeballed the Lego logo (say that 5 times real fast!!) and put that on. Then decided some little legos would be cute. I didn't really want to appliqué the little bumps on the pieces, so I found polkadots that looked OK. He's only 5, so I'm sure he will like it, if only to use to hit his little sisters.

Then I found these small thimbles that I got from a swap a few years ago. They need to go into a small quilt. Might make this one for myself, and use the idea for the Monthly Doll Quilt swap in a coming month.

So, I haven't done a lot, but at least I did something!!

I really should make a bingo card, if I could just get motivated.

Hello Wilma
The Lego pillow is great and well suited for a boy, a good idea for the logo!
It's good to read something from you!
Greetings from Wilma

Love the Lego Logo, Lego Logo, Lego Logo pillow case! Even typing it 3 times was hard - sounds like a train chugga! A thimble mini would be so special. We only need the flimsie of the bingo card with a list - so sew 25 blocks together sweetie.

The Lego logo is perfect, we have a Legoland just half a dozen miles away, and love it there - I used Lego bricks to plan my kitchen!
