Wake Up to Kona!

First and foremost I'd like to thank Madam Samm of Sew We Quilt! and Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy for this awesome hop.
This is not my first
This has been a fun hop and I've truly enjoyed seeing all the wonderful creations from some very talented individuals. It's the last day of the hop and here are my cohorts for the day. :-)
As soon as I signed up for this hop, I knew what I wanted to make. I sketched it out, pulled fabric and then...life happened!
I think that my fabric and design sat in my sewing area for a good two weeks before I decided that I had better get working on it. I was able to quickly piece the quilt and make the pillowcase. That was the easy part. It was the quilting that was slowing me down.
Actually, it was everything else that was slowing me down, but if I say that I just sound like I'm whining. Well, two weeks ago, I finally finished the quilting and binding and I love this. I think it will make a great "sleep over quilt" or "get better while sleeping on the couch at Grandma's house quilt." What do you think?

Halloween has always been a fun time for our family and Nikki has ALWAYS loved to make really great costumes for herself and her kids. Check out what she made this year.
Quinn was The Cowardly Lion until she got her badge of courage. Notice the courage?
And a close-up of the head. The ears are great!
I think Glenda the Good Witch (Sadie) was a little more interested in today's technology (a cell phone) than her magical wand.
Of course we all know that Dorothy was chased by those nasty little Flying Monkeys, right? Well it took me a long time and lots of shots to get a picture of Ronan as a Flying Monkey. It was really cute and he sure seemed to be flying around when I was trying to take his picture!
They were getting married!!!! YEAH!!!
They did take the kids out with Zach's family on Sunday before they headed back to Cincinnati, so all of Nikki's efforts were not wasted. The kids had fun and it was a wonderful weekend.
I'll share more pictures later. Life sure is good!
