It's a fact...
Kid's Love to Learn!!
From the moment  they are born, children are constantly learning new things. 
During the month of May let's make squares that will enhance 'our' children's learning journey.
One of the first things children love to learn is their colours
Let's make some PJs in every colour imaginable.

    FINALLY finished my number squares for May....on to June. :))

    May 2017 Theme - Kids Love To Learn

    • I am seconding that bravo for your persistence in stitching all those tiny appliques. Your placements are just amazing! And all your series of these squares are so delightful.  I can only imagine how the owner will be sharing the learning squares with many other look! see! kiddies. 

      • Thanks Deborah.  :)) I can be quite 'thingy' about symmetry, so in 9& 10 I tried to 'mess it up' a bit. Was ok with 9, not so happy with 10, but by then I was over the  sewing, so left it as it is. :))

    • They are all well worth waiting for Bev:))

       Bravo for all that sewing on of appliques, it takes longer than making the squares!

      • Thanks Chris.  :))  You are sooooo right. It was an experiment worth trying, I guess, but it sure took some time and my fingers were a little like pin

  • Better late than never - finally finished alphabet blanket.


    • Sharon, this blanket is going to provide so much fun for a child. Hide and seek letters, finding their name letters, scrunching up so letters show on top... Even I would have fun with this one. 

    • A beautiful blanket Sharon! Each square is perfect and the colours go so well together, a real treasure for a child:))

      • Wow Sharon that's an amazing blanket.
        • FANTASTIC blanket, Sharon!!! Great colours for boys (or girls) and a great learning tool, all wrapped up with love and warmth......a beauty.  :)) Good on ya' !!
