Just in under the wire, here's our entry for the Month of Softies, May Flowers theme. The kids and I have been doing so much talking about flowers this month--what they need to grow, and how the bees and butterflies all fit in-- and so lots of Calvin's drawings have been about that process. I fell in love with this butterfly of his (check out the cool "foot pads!"), and had to make it into something else. I embroidered pieces of the artwork onto some linen, added some vintage floral fabric, chenille backing, some rick rack, and voila--a small quilt! A bright reminder on the wall of the wonderful May flowers that bring us so much joy.
