Happiness is...

... a completed Picture Play quilt top! I'm checking one off my "to-do" list, and what a great feeling that is! I'm back from a battery-charging, energizing, weekend of sewing with my best buddies and I'm on a roll. As long as I have my bin of novelties out I am going to continue the trimming and piecing. I have two more children's quilts to finish in time for Christmas giving; right now, the light at the end of the tunnel is shining brightly and it definitely isn't an oncoming train! Guess who else was happy? Happiness is also having "Mom" at home, where she belongs!

Life is Good!

Matchless! That's what this quilt is - matchless. I'm in love with it. The pattern is so neat with scores of eye-catching blocks.

...and of course there's nothing like the treat of Hannes in the photo to bright smiles to the whole thing!!!

Welcome home "MOM!"
