What a great feeling to take this out of the dryer and put it on the bed! Quick stop outside to get a picture:

My husband is working on this flower bed today. It is all planned out. Now to just work the plan!

This is heavy on pictures and short on words. I did the first loops in navy, second in dark red. The quilting pattern is called Double Bubble.
All Thimbleberries fabrics. Finishes at 68" x 80".
This is me double teaming the binding and the math. I was doing two math lessons with my son. Figured I might as well start on the third side of my spools quilt binding while I was "just" sitting there waiting for him to do the 25 problems for each lesson.
From left to right above the quilt is my sewing projects bag, the math key with my Gingher embroidery scissors on them, a math paper, the math text book, and just off to the right, my brilliant son!

I love homemade bread. I love the smell when it's baking. I love touching the unbaked dough. I love watching the yeast bubble. I love watching my family gather around and devour it. I have a new love:

Here is my Tree of Life quilt center. It measures 54" square.
Here is what I have left over from a small piece of what I think will be the perfect inner border fabric. I have the pieced borders which come after this inner border nearly finished.
Here is a quilt top that I pieced some time ago. I am going to finish it as a surprise/thank you for a family that has been a huge help to my daughter living way up in northern Wisconsin. It's a snowball quilt, so that's appropriate, don't you think? The fabrics to the side are the inner (blue) and outer (gold) fabrics. I should be able to finish that quickly since it's all pieced. Each snowball is 4" square finished size.
