Sister wallhanging

I finished up this wallhanging for my sister, Laura. I had her come over and look thru my fabric stash and choose all the fabrics she liked, then used a few from what she chose. I only had to buy one additional yard to complete this wallhanging! :o) The saying blocks are from a Sisters panel that I bought earlier in the year from Shabby Fabrics. (I also have 2 daughter panels, and the Psalms 23 panel.) I hand quilted around the stars and the outside border. I am going to give it to my sister at Christmas. :o)

Here is Jimmy's new trick - he can curl up his tongue! He gets that talent from his Daddy and his sister, Lizzie! The other day he just walked up to me and says *look mommy* and this is what I got! :o)

Thanks for visiting!

Oh, a tongue curler! A sign of high intelligence - at least that is what we tell each other in my family of tongue curlers. Love the sister wall hanging. Aren't sisters the best?

Hello again! I know you will love doing the hexes once you get the basting done. It sure makes them easy to sew together.
Looks like your young one is pretty talented! All mine went thru that stage too. LOL You just never know what they will come up with next. :D
