Last year I received a Mickey quilt kit from a friend for Ian's new Mickey-themed room. It was so cute and I really wanted to make it, but I have not one sewing bone in my body, so I shelved the project for a while. When we moved to Alabama, I showed the kit to my sweet, sewing friend Dara, who took the project on right away for my little guy! Here she is working away at the sweet little quilt for him. Such a good friend, and "Aunt" too!
Oh, and that's not all - Dara made us a beautiful throw that she crocheted all by herself for us! It's warm, cozy and the perfect colorway to help tie in the other blues in our house to the living room. Another very thoughtful labor-of-love from one crocheter to another!
And finally, our two little love bugs. Dara wouldn't dream of "leaving Moira out" and showing up empty-handed for our little girl, so she lovingly made her the scarf you can (kinda) see around her neck - cute huh? She's worn it to school every day this week, even though it's in the low 60s today! :)
We had such a wonderful time with our friends, and continually feel the blessings God has showered us with in bringing our lives together. We've been so lucky to enjoy so many weekend visits together, that I have no idea at all what I'm going to do when Dara deploys again this Fall or when their tour in Florida is up *gasp* after that. I better start praying now... :)
