  4. Loving how this is coming along! Happy stitching today. Just finished cleaning up the house and putting things away (I do work well with clutter but my MIL (and hubby) hate it). Now waiting for the IL's to arrive for a late lunch and I just need to pop the ham in the oven. Scalloped potato's are baking and the rolls are ready at the end. I miss my double oven =). At least the birthday cake is done already.

  11. Lovely! Didn't realize that you were hand piecing the quilt. Turned out beautiful. How big is it? and do you have special plans for this one? Love your pickle dish as well.

    1. This project was started to use up some old stash fabric. So I am not sure how large it will get. I am not going for bed size but I think it will make a great couch quilt. I love the softness of it!

    1. Thanks! Today was spent out in the garden. It's always a struggle this time of year deciding do I want to garden or quilt. How lucky am I!
