Little Things that Make me Happy

Megan let me braid her hair the other day.  I can't believe she held still AND she even kept them in ALL DAY!  This from the girl who pretty much refuses to wear any kind of hair accessory.  It helped that she really likes the movie Tangled and so we braided her hair "like Rapunzel's".  That was one of my favorite parts -- the look on those little girls faces when they were given the chance to braid all that hair!  I was that little girl so this is fun for me!

I finally finished the quilt for my best friend from college, Krista.  Her baby girl was born in December but her gender was a surprise so I didn't actually start on the quilt until after she was born.  The pattern I've actually had for years!  Krista is crazy for cats.  And this was a crazy pattern!  It's a Buggy Barn pattern and it was the oddest thing to put together . . . but I'm pleased with the results.
 And of course every little girl needs a pair of shoes for formal occassions.  The pattern for this is from Curby's Closet if you're interested . . . 

It's nice to get a couple of projects scratched off my to-do list.  Now I just need to clean out the closets, finish the curtains, sew a couple of pillows, start a twin for Abby (quilt, not baby), and transplant some flowers!  Whew!  I need to get cracking!
