A Lovely Year of Finishes


  1. You have such a massive to do list it makes me feel better about how much I have to do too! Also I really like your blocks that you sewed for Boston -- such a fantastic cause!

    Looking forward to seeing your skirt!

    1. I am constantly adding projects it is a bad habit!!!!

  2. Sometimes, it's the family things getting accomplished that make us the most happy! Love your smiles and glad Mother's Day was good for you! What sweet memories!

    1. My son just got a new bike and every waking momment he wants to be out on it... So we have been having a ton of fun on the bikes!!!

  3. If you move even an inch, you are farther along than before, so you are making progress. And a picnic with family, that's more important than a quilt any day. You can quilt when that little cutie is grown, but once the day is gone, you never get back that time to do something with him.

    1. This so true. With the sun out and the weather so pleasant, we have been having so much fun outside!
