Cutie Pies

We interrupt our quilting posts to bring you two of the cutest little nieces of all time. Anna Rose and Mary Jean are now going on 6, and will soon start kindergarten. Sandy (my sister) emailed me this picture, saying the girls wondered if it might make it onto the blog.

Hmmm, is this a trick question, or what???


The Sunbonnet Sue quilt is Sandy's, and is very nearly identical to the one I have and shared here a few weeks back. That's Mary Jean on the left, and Anna Rose on the right. Sandy says the reason it came out last evening is because Mary Jean asked why she has quilts in a cupboard and never uses them. Good question, Mary Jean!! By gosh, we are using them now, aren't we?!

 They spend a lot of time at my sister's - a farm with cattle, cats, a dog, a pond, barns, and many, many diversions for little girls. I can only imagine the fun.

Here is more from Sandy's email which came last night:

 "Mary Jean is the one who like your blog. We look at it together for anything we can see that is a pretty color. She loved the fish quilt and Erin's blanket.  She looks at the colors of fabric you show and tells me the colors she likes. They are staying here tonight after going to open house for kindergarten which starts Wednesday. MJ wanted to stay, AR wanted to go home but was sad her sister was not going home with her. MJ ran out to give her a hug and say good bye and try to console her. We could not hear the conversation, but before long MJ was wiping tears from AR's cheek. It was so sweet. Then MJ whispers something to her sister and AR comes running back saying she will stay and is ready for Uncle Tim to take them on a 4-wheeler ride! That must have been the whisper."

Oh my!! Is that not the most adorable story??!!

Mary Jean helps her cousin Abby with shucking corn from Aunt Sandy's garden.


Here they are when they were on vacation in Florida earlier this summer. Mary Jean is in the white hat; Anna Rose in the tan.

It sounds like I will get to see them and their parents tonight when we make our regular weekly visit to the Mexican restaurant. Can't wait!

Happy Quilting, Friends!

Aren't they gorgeous? I hope they enjoyed the 4-wheeler ride?
