I have a lot of reasons to celebrate these days. I rounded up the leftovers of some recent projects and made this little quilt. Maybe it will be a baby gift.
And I took out my pile of string blocks and pieced them into this scrappy quilt top. Even more impressive, I made backings and battings for several finished tops, and they're waiting to be pinned basted. I like to pin baste at night with an old movie, preferably one starring Joan Crawford. Maybe Mildred Pierce or The Women.
And I quilted this top for Allie for her birthday. I'd made it for myself, but then decided that a cake and flowers quilt was perfect for a 21st birthday.
Isn't she a saucy girl?
And my parents and my brother came to visit. Hey, this scenery is a cause for celebration too. This is at Patrick's Point where Alex's high school graduation was held.
Here's my happy boy.
He made a very successful graduation speech.
Life is good.
