Tinkerbell for Anna-belle

Since our trip to Disney in May of 2009, Anna has had a fond liking for Tink.  The loveable companion of the valiant Peter Pan.  So, as the time came to turn A’s crib into a toddler bed, I began working on making her a patchwork quilt for her “new” bed.

I really enjoy sewing.  I know I do, but I forget how much I really like it until I start a new project.  I had to borrow Mom’s machine as mine is still in a pile of boxes in storage (anxiously awaiting me to unpack it when our AZ house sells…because it will!)

I had great helpers.  I tried to mostly work on it during naps and at night, but they both are fascinated by the sewing machine and Hudson loves pushing the pedal.

This is the quilt before it was washed and tack quilted.

The finished product – with cool pillows Grandmom found for her new big girl bed.  We’re pretty sure she really likes it.  :o)

is that a tan miami pic for your new blogger id? Yes, Chris made the header in Photoshop. It's actually a picture of the roof line at the beach house.
