Foxy Mama

 My Sister N Law is having a birthday this month.  She lives in Indiana and will probably see this post before her package arrives, but she'll be surprised as she's reading this post!  :)  I rarely get to see her, because we live so far apart.  She is so laid back and enjoyable to be around, I wish we lived closer.  We recently started following each other on Pinterest and I discovered that she likes foxes!!  So I found some really CUTE fox fabric and made her a pillow sham!  I've never made a pillow sham before and it was FUN!  I found an excellent tutorial over at Pile O Fabric.  I want to make some more for my couch pillows. :)  When I was admiring the back of my newly sewn pillow sham, I noticed a few squares that were really 'OFF'.  It made me smile, because I must have been sipping my wine and sewing.  lol  never sip and sew unless you're willing to accept the little oops that may appear.  ;)  of course, sometimes those little oops are worth the smile.  :)

 Another block that I've been working on...  It's called Connemara on Mccall's Quilting
