I have been working really hard to get Kyleigh's vest finished the past couple of weeks. I wanted her to get a chance to wear it before school ended, as her class is The Dolphins.

This is the back, I know it is busy, but just what this
6-year-old likes.

This is a little more detail of the left and right sides of the vest. I found some cute buttons at a bead shop, it is sort of hard to see but the jumping fish on the left side in the seaweed is one, and the "Nemo" fish on the other vest side is one.

I have been sort of side-tracked the last month, with the death of an aunt, out of town visitors for 2 weeks, and some house projects.

I also finished quilting a project for my granddaughter Kyleigh's teacher. Her class is called the Dolphins. So I put together a quilt for her teacher. I am waiting for Kyleigh's illustration for the label, and then I will post that picture too.

I have been busy working on a couple of CQ projects. This is 1/2 of Kyleigh's vest. Part of it is hard to see. I know this cotton vest will be washed so I have been cautious on the threads and things I am doing, on this vest for an active 6-year old. I think I will do some beading, too, but have not gotten to that. Kyleigh picked out some charms she would like me to use, but have not added those yet either. Kyleigh as I do love whales, and so I added the whale tale on this side.

I am also in a Garden RR with 3 friends, Susan Nixon, Fran Regos and Moira McSpadden, and this is Susan's block. I added the hand-dyed flower lace, and the beaded feather stitch going up the right side.
