For The Boys! Day SIX...and I am UP!

First of all, I wanted to say a HUGE Thank you
to Madame Samm over at SEW WE QUILT 
and the For The Boys Cheerleader,
Little Miss AMY from
for this wonderful little hop!
I have loved looking at everyone's
I have two little grandsons and another one on the way...
all that I this is the perfect little hop for me!
My little GB Holdyn inspired a couple of these,
and with his birthday coming up the day before
Thanksgiving, I wanted to put together some things just
for him...
His first love, AFTER HIS GIGI (of course)
So i thought, what better thing to put out
here on the Runway...

I made it soft and fun and just the right size for his little hands...
I used a button for the propeller...and it is tacked on really tight!
I added a windows...and a tail fin...
His favorite colors are blue, red and apple green!
I can't wait to give it to him!

It was a super simple drawing, then cut out of two favorite fabrics...
just a little handsewing...and TADA!
Holdyn's OWN Airliner!
My next little project was for Mr. Holdyn too, as he recently
moved into a new home...
He loves to have pillows to lay on the floor,
and he loves ANYTHING soft...
So...I made this oversized pillow and blanket for him..
Then there was this little boy's quilt I finished earlier this month...
I just loved the colors in this...

and finally...
I was given some old baby blankets to re-purpose
for the next generation...
I didn't want to ruin the original blankets..
so I just added batting and new facings...
I thought they turned out soft and scrumptious...

And...well, that's all for me...
They are such a TREAT!!!
