This one is Susie and she had baby Quinten back in July. I have wanted to do one of the zigzag quilts and I found this pattern on Pinterest from the Bee Square Blog .
I like the idea that this is made with strips. I chose bright boyish novelty prints and tone on tones to alternate. Since this ends up with bias edges, I recommend staystitching the edge before trying to baste it for quilting. It will keep it from stretching out of whack.

I thought I would try a project that would take less time than a quilt since it was the busy time of year for us. So I chose this cute yo-yo bunny pattern by Indygo Junction thinking it would work up quick. I love their stuff.
Clover "Quick" Yo-Yo Makers were the perfect sizes for this project and I made a few every night while watching television.

The stolen credit cards, driver’s license, phone, and checks have all been replaced. I have changed the locks on my house and had my car ignition reprogrammed. While time consuming and costly, it was not that difficult to do.
Often it is the loss of the little things, the more personal things, that make us feel most violated: the little pocket knife given to me by my mother who is no longer with us, my one-of-a-kind key chain, a favorite wallet that suited my needs perfectly. You have allowed these things to come back to me.
The return of all of my keys reassures me that no one will be taking my car in the middle of the night or be coming to my house when I’m away.
The return of my Social Security card (that I didn’t even know was in the purse and made me both horrified and relieved to see was still there) gives me hope that my identity is intact and safe.
The return of my jump drive that had work files on it relieves any anxiety that I am missing important information.
Having these things in my possession again has restored some peace of mind and for that I am grateful. You are an honorable man, sir. May God abundantly bless you because of your kindness.
Mr. Woods retrieved my purse from the side of the highway today while picking up cans. He found my business card inside and called my work. He then drove my purse to the police station for me to pick up later in the day.
