Time Passes Like a Dream .....

Time has certainly flown by. Seems like yesterday she was this little girl

and now she's this beautiful, young lady

who will be graduating high school next month and attending a tech school this fall. She signed up this past Thursday and leaves in August. She will be studying collision and repair with a specialization in Street Rods and Customization. She definitely knows what she wants. But she also knows how to be a girl.
I thought I would share some of the projects she has completed lately as gifts for friends of hers.
She did the quilt for her friend Lyz. She designed and completed it herself.

Lyz and Tina, BFFs
The pillows were for a family she often goes to visit down South. She drew the Japanese lady after looking at several different ones and then transferred it to fabric and surrounded it with Japanese prints piano key style.

The other pillow she took a focus fabric and just cut it up to create a mosaic effect and put borders around the pieces.

They all turned out really nice I think. I'm so proud of this girl of mine.
