When Kristals new set "Beautiful Thoughts" arrived in the mail, I read all the stamps to Lexi. When I read this sentiment "Today I will be happier than a bird with a french-fry", Lexi knew just what she wanted to make. We used the Art Philosophy cartridge for the french fry box and the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge for the bird. Lexi wanted to make her own bird (who looks remarkably like her pet duck "camo") and her own box of fries (marked with an "m", so we know where she eats). She was so proud of how she colored in the lines and used Nana's sharp scissors to cut it out with. She wanted to make her's all herself, so it was "Hands off, Nana". I made mine a bit different using some tulle and the new twine that Kristal is carrying in her store! I think the twine is definitely 'french fry' looking.
Lexi finished her container with a large chocolate chip cookie and gave it to her mom. Her mom is a corrections officer at our local jail, and Lexi said that her "Mom doesn't get a chance to smile much working with bad guys," so she wanted to give mom a smile. I think it was PERFECT!
Lexi and I do a lot of paper piecings together. I have a basket of misc. pieces that were left over from this and that - so she made her own paper piecing duck. She was pretty proud of this picture.
