Happy Mother's Day!

We're going to have a fun morning taking our grandson to Disneyland!  This afternoon, I'm going to do some hand stitching on these two little projects:

This cute little bear is block one of Vintage Toy Box BOM from Shabby Fabrics.  What allured me to this BOM was that each piece is already glued and laser cut.  All I have to do is place the pieces on the background fabric, iron and stitch!  Stitching through fusible web can be difficult in the areas that two pieces come together, but it's quick!  Jennifer also included a separate pattern for each block for needle turn applique!  When my grandson saw the block, he said he wanted it :).  I told him it will be a wall hanging and we can hang it in his room.  He's excited!!

After I finish the stitching on the bear block, I'll work on "My Crazy Summer" stitchery:

Hard to get the right color saturation on a cloudy day!

Some slow stitching will be the order of the afternoon after a busy morning at Disneyland!  Linking up with Kathy's Quilts!

I hope everyone has a beautiful Mother's Day!!
