Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

I was having a hard time finding fabric for a little boy quilt in my stash. I didn't want flowers in it. I knew my sister had a line of fabric out that would be perfect. So I called her to ask where I could find it. She said she didn't know. Apparently Andover has not let her know the shops that buy her fabric. So I took what I had found in my stash and went to the local quilt shop to find some more so I could make a quilt.
With my fabric in hand I went home for some happy sewing. My wonderful hubby came home while I was sewing and asked what I was up to. I told him I was making little boys. He said he was not sure he liked me doing that without him. Ha, Ha. I showed him my little boys and pointed out that these never gave me any grief. Just as I was finishing these boys a lovely package arrived in the mail for me.
My sister found some of her Cogsmo fabric in the warehouse and she sent it to me. Aren't I just so blessed. What great sisters I have. Thank you Julie!

So I went to making more little boys. I am going to have a bunch of these little quilts. But I think they will make good gifts for some little people in my life.
