One of the most adorable things my 3 year old is saying right now is, "thanks mom, you're the best." I then follow with, "no, you're the best!" This goes back and forth for a while. I know one day she won't say these things as freely so for now I am going to eat it up!
I had promised big relish a handmade when I went off to QuiltBLISS and dropped the ball. Luckily, the pink plastic miniature horse I won that was part of the Sarah Jane decororation pacified her that night I returned home. I was itching to finish something quick this week and decided to make a pixelated heart pillow. I had cut a bunch of solid 2 1/2 inch squares and 3 inch squares for another project; therefore, churning out this pillow was pretty quick. You need 10 hst's for the heart (3 x 3 inch blocks) and the rest are 2 1/2 inch squares. I then added a border using some more of the 2 1/2 inch squares and quilted diagonal lines. Finished size at 20 x 20 inches.
And of course she loved it and declared, "you're the best!" -- It's the little things :) Hope you have a great Valentine's week! xoxo
ps - big relish has also picked up a new word that isn't quite as adorable and starts with a big giant "F" --- oops!! We are working on that mommy (and daddy but mostly mommy) fail.
