Busy May

I finished a pillow sham for my couch; now I need to finish up her twin.  :)  I'm thinking that I'll look for some more BOHO fabric and make a matching quilt too.  The construction design is just like my Foxy Mama Pillow Sham with a zipper.  

I finished up my sister's Mug Rugs too.  The SS is for Secret Sisters.  She and a few of her teacher friends get together and share gifts and birthdays and such.  Thye call themselves the Secret Sisters.  :)  And of course, they are ALL princesses.  ;)

I'm working on another scrap quilt.  One of the many things I like about a scrap quilt is looking at these small pieces and remembering other projects I've done.  It makes me smile.

I'm also working on this two tone quilt.  :)    I love how blocks can look so completely different when you put them together and see the big picture.  :)

And look at my little crazy MaoMao!  Sleeping sweetly while Little Man uses him as a platform for his toys.  He wants to be with us no matter what we're doing, even if it means being 'loved' by a little, sweet 4 year old.  

May your weekend be full of many pleasant surprises and lots of love.  :) -April @Little Mama Hen

Hands 2 Help Charity -Checkin

Front of Quilt
I'm just checking in with an update for my Hands 2 Help over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  I have the front completed. *notice a little Mr. MaoMao is always interested in what Mama is doing.

And I know you wanted a closer look at that sweet little face.  He's such a little devil Angel.  :)

I'm trying to finish up the back but sometimes sweet little petals take a while.  :)

I hope you have a wonderful week! -Little Mama Hen

Totes and Quilts

 I have two tote finishes.  Both patterns come from Moda's book Fresh Fabric Treats.  The Giraffe tote is for my sister; her birthday is coming up.  :)  I love you Peaches!  The other little tote is full of candy and cookies, ready for my Little LadyBug to give her teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week.

I'm also working on my little Marmalade Quilt.

Turning these:
 Into these:  and these into

THIS.  :)

I can't wait to finish up the back and get this on quilted up!  Have a great weekend! -Little Mama Hen
