finished up quilting the big red star for Nancy. She made it from dark rusty red flannels and homespuns surrounded by white flannel--it turned out great but I am a little leery of how it will look after its first laundering! I'm afraid it will have a pink background! Oh well, it will still be warm and comfy because it has a soft "minky" backing. I had not quilted this type of fabric before but it was relatively problem-free. And the quilting takes on a very sculpted look.
The lilacs and our 2 apple trees have been blooming--
I'm spending 4 days home with my quilting and sewing, Bob is gone fishin' with his buddy, so I am living it up at home! That means I can eat, sleep and sew at will!
Friday was an important day for our family--Dan turned 26!! He is far from home, but always close to my heart. He was such a loveable little guy, a real cutie as he was growing up. Always ready with a hug and a laugh. I love this little old picture of him, working on eating a cookie that was bigger than his head! No limits for that guy!
The robins on the front porch have left the nest. This year I stayed clear of the nest, after scaring the little babies out of the nest last year before they were really ready. Left that up to mama robin this time!
