I am playing with dots...
Don't you just want to kiss that bare belly....

As you can see I am already working on a dot parade..

And I have the rest of the day well to ...
JUST PLAY?

  5. I do, I do want to kiss that belly! :) Hi, ya, Madame Samm. I can hardly believe I'm actually commenting here. Guess what? I finally decided to download "Chrome" and see if some of my 'issues' on the net might be solved. YES, YES!! I can comment again on many blogs; so far, haven't found one that doesn't work for me. Woo, Hoo!! Madame, I think I have my settings at 'public' but after all my problems, I'd like to be absolutely sure. Can you click on me and tell me if I'm OK or if I still show up as a no-reply? The most grateful...LJ

  13. I have one of those applique pressing sheets and I LOVE it!

    I made a baby quilt when my grandson Parker was born... I used the Oh Baby pattern... It was babies in diapers and diaper shirts, sitting with their backs to you.

    I love your pattern too! I am definitely going to make this!! :)
