Play Time

Sometimes you spend so much time working
that you just need to step away and play :)
I decided to play hookie from "work" yesterday
and spent the afternoon making this fun little play mat 
for my sweet little Daisy May. 
The fabric is "Surrounded by Love" by Deb Strain.
I used a charm pack and a pattern called "Roundabout" 
from the book - Another Bite of Schnibbles".
I changed the outer edge a bit to use up my remaining scraps.
I used nice thick batting to change it from a table top quilt
to a thick and squishy baby play mat.

I also wanted to share with you the super cute
Chicken Matryoshkas that my son and daughter-in-law
brought me from Sequoia.
I was babysitting their 4 Minions for a few days
while they spent some much needed time away.
How cute are these? 
Apparently there is a Nesting doll shop that was just across 
the street from where they were staying.
Lucky me :) 
I guess I'd better get back to sewing.....
