June Smalls SAL

Earlier this week we returned from a trip to Iowa, visiting DH's family...and look what hitched a ride in my airplane carry-on!
Little Straw Bonnet Girl
This is an old freebie from Designs by Gloria & Pat, creators of some terribly kitschy designs (including, I believe, the Precious Moments patterns that I have vowed never to stitch).  But she was cute, and reminded me of the quilt blocks my Gram used to make, so I kitted her up - in 2 colors, actually - and stitched my way through 4 flights and a layover.  I'm thinking of doing 2 more and making a wallhanging or pillow for my mom, who has 3 granddaughters.

I think it would be a wonderful gift for your mom. Your Precious Moments comment made me smile!. This little stitch reminded me of those Sunbonnet Babes my mom stitched on kitchen towels - Warm and Fuzzy Memory

Total throwback! I think my sister was Holly Hobby for Halloween one year. :)
