My life has had some ups and downs this last weekend. The good - Caleb Jonathan was born on the 15th of April. Way over in Singapore. His mommy had a "marathon"labor, 26 hours, she is a marathon runner so she likes the number 26. Grandchild #3 and #4 is on the way.

I have completed my daughter-in-laws gifts, but the preview will have to wait till May, after she receives them!
Do you remember playing the game Concentration? The Match Game? We used to play it with Playing cards. The Cottage Mama made a set a few months back, she calls it "I Spy". I made a set for Sophia, now Rachel wants a set for her class at the Montessori School where she teaches. They were fun to make, thanks to my Winding Ways quilt group, who helped me sew them last week.

I think I will find a thiner batting, I used Warm and Natural, I have loads of scraps, I might like them better a bit thiner? This is a great project for scraps, I used 5 inch squares and a 1/4 inch seam.
