Gifts For the Nieces

We made a few gifts and were able to give them to the recipients this weekend.

First, you've seen me working on this, but it is finished. I wanted to keep it simple, and I think it looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.
Here's the finished front. (I these this crazy early in the morning, so I know the color is a little funny.)
Here's a bit of a close up, and you can see a peak of the corner of the back, and my mild label.
We also made my nieces (the ones in the quilt above) a frog game. The boys had tons of fun making/helping with these. We took the idea from Mama Urchin's Lilypad Game. We also used the same Purl Bee Frogs and they worked excellent.
Just a simple zipper bag to keep it all in. I meant to add handles, but I made it quite late at night, and forgot, so..... ooops.
And also, something I forgot to post a picture of. My Levi was in a musical version of Treasure Island. He played Chief Pigaloo. He spoke Pig-Latin and ROCKED THE PART! I was so proud, and truly impressed!

Wow! The girls under the tree are beautiful. It's so serene, yet full of wonderment. Great Job!
The coloring and stitching go really well together.

Thanks so much. She really liked the quilt, and my nieces loved the frogs!

Your lilypad toss turned out adorably. I love that fabric you used for the bag.
