Just a sample
So many of you know our dear blogging buddy, Debbie, and have mentioned you can't wait to see the quilt I'm making for her. I usually don't post photos before I'm finished but this morning sent these off to Debbie and thought I'd share them with you. I decided not to do any intricate quilting designs because of time constraints but the quilting I am doing is covering a good portion of the quilt. Make sure you click on the second photo to get a good look at the quilting. Yes, I still hand quilt and it takes me longer than if I was doing it on a machine or having my daughter machine quilt it for me.
I have taken a machine quilting class but girls, honestly, I so love and prefer hand quilting. I never mastered machine quilting and with hand quilting I can sit and stitch while watching t.v. at night. I'm very happy with the overall look of this quilt and know it will match Debbie's items perfectly.
On the baby bird front~yesterday's photo made them look so much bigger than they are. Last night while mama was away, one of the babies had its head resting on the top of the wreath. It looked adorable and so very small. I haven't seen the dad at all; the mama is off quite a lot getting food for the three that we've seen.
Hubby will try to get a photo in a couple of days; I'm having so much fun when I look out our window to check on them.
Have a glorious Son-filled Wednesday. Noreen
