So u Sew....So and Sew...so-sew...asi asi....

To hear my 2 year old nephew say, "Grandma is mamacita, mamacita, Grandma is Mamacita......" is a hoot. He can barely wear size 18 month shorts but is excited to speak Spanish to emulate her. My mom has always loved to visit Mexico and is fluent in the language. She mixes in words when with the grandchildren and very fun to see how they use the words.




Asi Asi means "I feel so, so....." and of course you need to rock your hand back and forth while saying it.


"And what does this have to do with a quilt blog, Em?" do you ask? Well....

My mom has pieced these adorable colorFULL and happy children quilts and I have found a home for them. Julie at So-and-sewblogspot.com is requesting fabric for the Linus Project she is involved in. Please visit her lovely blog and if you have a spare top or fabric....So many wonderFULL oppurtunities to share our love for this hobby with others that need a HUG when there are hearts are sad or CELEBRATING! Something about envisioning a little child missing their mom or dad and grabbing their blankie for comfort.....

The "blankie" I am gifting is not posted because I want Julie to be surprised. It is a favorite of mine and quilted by the lovely Green Fairy...May it bring a smile to little one.

I think I am feeling........Sew SEW!!!!! "Mom, como se dice Sew Sew en espanol?"

Love, Em

Your Mom's quilts are so full of happeniness with all of those bright colors. Project Linus is a wonderful organization - I participate locally. Have a wonderful week, Em!!

I just love the wonderful, happy colors in your mom's quilts. Any recipient would be thrilled with them. I can see where you got your great sense of color!!

Would that be "coser-coser" (waving needle and thread in the air)????

Love the Blast of Colors that your Mom used in those - I expect to see the pinwheels turning and color blowing out of them!

Lo major de mi viaje en Mexico, Costa Rica e Ecuador cada ano es practicar espanol. Me encanta communicarse con otros en su propia idioma. Me gustaria que mis hijos assistir una escuela bilingue, pero no hay donde yo vivo. :(
