Juggling blocks

I made three sets of juggling blocks the other night...
one for Israel, one for Daniel, and one for me :)
We're practicing every day and maybe
we'll have our own circus act in the future!
I made them using the pattern
in Denyse Schmidt "Quilts" book,
with linen, cotton fabric
and filled them up with rice.

Cute! They remind me of the 'bean bags' we used to use when I was in school. Except these are way more beautiful of course!

Oh Geninne, they are so cute! I am learning how to quilt with some other ladies at church at the moment, we are loving it! I am going to attempt a quilt for my baby boy who is due soon.

They're extra beautiful, "with sprinkles," as my friend would say.

I've been trying to think of little gifts I can make for the kids at our family reunion. These may be the answer. Everything you do is first rate. Today I posted a photo of my clean studio. Your's is so tidy I just had to have mine look that good. Love your art.

Hello Geninne,

Love your art work! But not this one. Filling the bags with rice is a waste of rice, I think. There is rice shortage going on now in many parts of the world, and people are starving literally due to rice shortage.
I am not writing this to hurt you but hoping that you would give it a thought.

A big fans of yours,
