For the Boys....my stop

When I saw that there was going to be a "For the Boys" blog hop going on I just HAD to take part in it! I have a special little boy that is getting ready to turn SEVEN on the 24th of this month! (seriously, where does the time go? Seems like just yesterday he was born!)
Anyways, I knew this would give me that "gentle push" I needed to make him something really special for his birthday. So I hopped on board!

If this is your first time visiting me here, WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME! I'm SEW happy you stopped by! I hope you'll stay for a while and get to know me a bit better...(and hopefully like me enough to follow me! ;-) )   You can learn a little bit about me right here and you can see some of my finished quilts right here! Also, if you are on Instagram or Twitter you can find me there too (@craftnursequilt)! I love new followers!!!!

Let's get back to the reason we are here! With this blog hop in mind I had been watching one of the blogs I follow and she was creating a FANTABULOUS quilt! I knew my little boy would just love it if I made him one just like it. So, when I saw she had finished her quilt and was about to publish a pattern for it I left a comment (half joking-half not) stating if she needed a "tester" I would LOVE to be her girl! AND SHE LET ME!!!! WAHOO!!!! lol! (I'll be doing a full review of her pattern very soon, so stay tuned!)
Anyhow, the blog I'm talking about Seriously....I Think it Needs Stitches. (you should really go check her out, she does some pretty awesome work!)


Isn't it adorable?!?!? I used his favorite colors and pulled from my stash! This pattern was super easy to follow too! (more on that in a later post)

It's got some of his favorite things! I love this power drill!!!

The hammer and pliers!!! Too cute!

And what boy doesn't love a good saw?


There's even a wrench and a loose screw! (we won't go there on loose screws though! LOL!)

Anyways, he has NO clue I'm making this for him, I've been VERY SNEAKY! I've got approx 12 days left to get this baby a backing, quilted, and bound...think I can do it? I better!!!
I'm even thinking about making him a pillow to go with it....hmmmmm......

I hope you enjoyed my stop on this wonderful blog hop! Don't forget to go check out my fellow blog hoppers though!
