Going to Cape Town

This little quilt is heading to a sweetie pie in Cape Town, South Africa.  I hope it gets there fast, because Miss Aryanna is super tall at 5 months old.  Wait - can a baby be tall before she can stand up?  The quilt front pattern is 'Charm Squares Baby Quilt' (a Hunky Dory charm pack) by Elizabeth at Oh, Fransson!, and I got it from the Sew Mama Sew! website.  I am a big fan of both of these websites, especially the tutorials.  I especially look forward to the publication of Elizabeth's book this fall, "The Practical Guide to Patchwork".  

Cara's giveaway

Ok, I really don't understand WHY she's giving away this gorgeous fabric, but she IS!  Clearly, she is a better woman than I, I who would be crouched over this lovely little stack, rubbing my hands together and chortling in a disconcertingly greedy way.  I lust after every single one of these fabrics.  You can enter the giveaway, too, but if you get the prize instead of me, I'll weep bitter tears.  Seriously, this is such a nice giveaway - check it out.
