Remembering and Celebrating

I have spent every waking available moment working on Dolly quilts. I have a deadline, which I rather like. It's nice to be able to plan a project and plan the project's completion too. However, in the rush to complete and deliver these tiny quilts on time, I sometimes get away from the reason I like to sew: because it's fun! So when my son's birthday approached, I decided to get back to my roots and make him something FUN!

My son loves owls, he had a dream about owls when he was very little and the image stuck, so one King Owl stuffie pillow was in order.

And, since I got so much flack for making 4 other boys' capes and not a cape for my own boy, I made him a cape (with some nifty pleats around the collar).

Now is the part when I gush about my little guy. He is a very loving person first and foremost. He will pause any activity and run across the room to give me a kiss, if I ask for one. His imagination amazes me and he can turn a bottle cap into a magic flying convertible airplane with ruffles edges for better flying power. Um, Wow. He is very passionate and he can fly completely off the handle screaming and yelling, and this can happen anywhere, even at the library. He is active, strong, and energetic and he is on the go from morning till night. He falls asleep completely exhausted, sprawled out in his bed. I feel honored to be his Mom, watching in awe as he grows up.

Happy birthday, Dear Boy!
