The Moon, A Friend and a Baby Quilt
I took this picture yesterday on my front porch. The sky was much blue-er than it looks in the picture and the moon was much brighter and the mountains were much pinker LOL It was a lovely sight though and I wanted to share the moon with my grson A, with whom I share the song...I See the Moon...and he and I love to remember that when he is looking at the moon he knows that Nana loves him!
Today my small group of quilt friends met up for a Christmas lunch at Mimi's and enjoyed time chatting and catching up since we were all there for the first time in months. We are creating the blocks from the Civil War Love Letter Quilt together monthly, taking turns teaching. CL and I were exchange partners...long story there...and I gave her one of my mini lunch boxes decorated with special sewing paper with a couple of Fons and Porter notions inside. She gave me a lovely stack of Civil War repros fat quarters...just love those and amazingly enough I didn't have one of them already! I will have to share a picture later.
Here is my baby quilt all finished and bound and if you look close you can see where I added a yellow strip to finish the binding. It's OK, and the baby won't care, right? LOL
New Friends party tonight so I will have more pics to share soon.
