Inspired by... Lizzie

Someone very special is turning 2 years old this week!

Say hello to Lizzie Bug!  Isn't she adorable?  Love her! 
She's our nephew's daughter and I think it is a downright crime that I have never met this precious little blessing in person!  (We're hoping to correct that very soon!)

She has good taste, too... she likes frogs.

Here's what I made her for her birthday.

I fell in love with these blankets when I saw them over on Katie's Craptastic blog.  (Katie has a great tutorial so I won't repeat it here.)  When I saw this fabric at JoAnn's, I just knew I had to make one for our Lizzie Bug!

My friend, M.E., embroidered this for me using her "fancy" machine - I just love how it came out!  Thanks, M.E.!

We shipped it off to the birthday girl today!

Of course, Aslan, aka baby kitty, had to help with the packing.
Tissue paper in a BOX!  Who can resist that!

So, what projects have you been working on this week?
