Mother's Day

September 1, 1980 was the day I became a "mom".

It forever changed my life.

It remains one of the most beautiful days of my life.

My little girl, all grown up and getting married in one week.

I love you Christine.

New Year's Quilt

Remember when I first started marking this quilt on January 1?  The center was a linen that I received as a gift from Cindy Needham and I wanted to make it special.

Well I finally got a block of "me" time and yesterday I finished the quilting.  I actually used an entire 3000 yard cone of Bottom Line Thread in the bobbin!  And I did add a vintage doiley in the middle.  I still have binding to do and lots of beading.  But this is it so far.

I'll share more pictures as it progresses and hopefully I can show the entire quilt.  Thank you Cindy!
