Hand Quilting = relaxing

I'm having fun quilting my dear sweet niece's baby quilt these days. I will admit it isn't the most speedy process, but it is so relaxing that it helps me fall asleep quicker at night.

The photo above is the back of the quilt. I think it looks kinda cool with white fabric and red thread.

Today is "Little Christmas" when the 3 wise men visited the infant Jesus. Traditionally, my mom would give us a small gift to close out the season back when we were kids.

I thought that was a really sweet tradition, so I gave a little book called Balloonia to my son in order to carry it on. My husband surprised me with some Burt's Bees lip gloss (rockin!) as my little gift.

While I was in the mall today I ran into these rain boots by Tokidoki and I immediately fell in love. So Japanese-superflat-inspired and cute. I didn't try them on for fear I would buy them.

the hand quilting looks awesome.
Something I have wanted to try for a long time, using a colored thread rather than a cream that just blends in and hides!
can't wait to see the red on the top of the quilt
what fabric did you use on the back of the quilt?

Beautiful. I think it is relaxing as well. As long as I don't try to do it with toddlers around.
