HI Y'all!! This string quilt is quilted, bound, washed, and ready for gifting! It is a patient quilt...we have some patients at the hospital who are really sick, and stay for a long time, sometimes, so this will go to one of these patients. I big stitch hand quilted it through each string, and washed it this morning. It is so sweet smelling, and all crinkled up just right! Don't you love quilts that can be washed, and crinkled, and really used? Fun!!
We were recently in a huge hail storm. It is was just surreal...the huge hail stones thundering down on the metal roof. BOOM! BOOM, BOOM!! The hail stones were golf ball size. I can just imagine how it was for the people who got baseball and softball sized hail! The eerie thing is, when we saw this rainbow, you could see the hail in the rainbow light...individual hail stones up in the air. I mean, it was so weird watching it go down the valley, and seeing the individual hail pieces in the air, far away, they were so large! I tried to just be still and be in the moment, and enjoy the power and awe of this storm. The cars were under cover, so they were OK...
Well, lookie! A gorgeous quilt from a gorgeous friend...it is up, and will stay up through the summer! Thank you so much, dear friend! See her blog here!!
Mother's day! I hope you all had a wonderful day! I received these gorgeous flowers from my son and his wife...and they are just so pretty. Thank you so much, guys! Having you is such a joy in my life, and I could not even begin to ask for better kids!
OK, I can't resist! I found some more little triangles, cut off from connector corners, and so made a tiny quilt top. It is fun to make something out of (almost) nothing!
I hope you find yourself happy and blessed this day!
