while I was gone....

While I was gone....
 the mail kept coming. ;)
Thank you Sarah for sending this sweet package
for Hands 2 Help!!!
I'm going to love making a donation quilt with your selections!

While I was gone...
 I was able to walk through
an antique mall and snap this picture!!!

And this one.....
Then....
My batteries DIED!!!!
Ugh!!!!

While I was gone....
I got sentimental
as my Third child graduated from COLLEGE!!!
How can this be???
She was a baby YESTERDAY!!!!

While I was gone....
I quilted....
and quilted....
And even kept warm a couple of times with this little quilt!!!!

Ooooh!
It's so good to have a little quilt along on trips!!!

  2. I just adore the fishy fabric that was in your mail! Your hand quilting is 'warming' as well as the quilt - love, love, love hand quilting.

  3. Have fun with the H2H fabric. It is so fun to work with fabric someone else chose. I love the little quilt you hand quilted. Someone is very lucky.
