Still Sew Exciting!

Those of you who have been reading my blog for some time might remember a little project I took on several years ago. It was sewing a pillowcase for LO -- my first official sewing project EVER!

It turned out pretty decent, if you ask me (for a first-timer anyway):

LO's pillow!

Obviously I couldn't NOT do the same thing for my little guy Chase! I picked up some fabric the other day and finally got to work on it this morning. Minus the trouble with inserting a bobbin (involving an impromptu visit from my mom for assistance), I'd say things went rather smoothly! Here's my finished product:

Chase's pillow!

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Chase was excited about his first pillow. Either that, or the "boy" in him came out as he started tossing the pillow into the air and/or across the floor. He had a blast playing with it, but I have to wonder whether he actually knows what it's for? Obviously never having used a pillow before, he just figured it was a new fun toy.

Checking out his new pillow for the first time... pointing to the animals.
Still pointing at the different jungle animals.
Tossing the pillow for the 1,200th time... :)

"Where's Chase?!" ~ "Peekaboo!"

Pray for Aly Jean . . . Update

UPDATE: Aly's Fontan has been rescheduled to Monday, March 28th. Her surgeon, Dr. Bove, was needed on an emergency case and Aly's surgery was bumped. Please continue to pray for Jenny and Jeremy as they have to deal with the 2 hour drive home followed by another week and a half of anxious waiting to get this surgery behind them. I can only imagine how frustrating and disappointing it must be to have everything planned out to have as little impact on sweet Aly as possible only to have the rug pulled out from under them. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers over the next few weeks.

Please pray for adorable little Aly Jean Lincoln as she undergoes her Fontan surgery at U of M today. Dr. Bove is an amazing surgeon, so not only is she in good hands physically, we all know she's being held in the Ultimate Healer's hands as well.

Please take a few minutes to pray for an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery for Aly. Her mom, Jenny, is one of my beloved Sisters by Heart and I know how difficult it is to hand a precious child over for surgery.
