I cant believe she is 6yrs old!

Well my youngest, Megan, is now 6 years old. She actually turned 6 on August 20th. To keep a little piece of her always little I made a small handprint wall hanging. I let her pick the fabric, that explaines the "Cheetalicious" choice. lol I appliqued her handprint and added her name and age with machine embroidery before quilting it. Here is a picture of it.

Im going to do a larger wallhanging with handprints of the whole family. The one we did 9 years ago needs replaced. Handprints always remind me of a gift I made for my mom when I was in first grade. It had my handprints on either side of a poem. She had that hung in her room for years and I read that poem so many times that I know it by heart. I would like to share it now. :)

Sometimes you get discouraged because I am so small

and always leave my fingerprints on furniture and walls.

But everyday Im growing

and I'll be grown someday

and all those tiny handprints

will surely fade away.

So here's a final handprint

just so you'll recall

exactly how my fingers looked

when I was very small.
