It was a long and winding the road, the trip to finish these damn quilts. Oops did I say that out loud? I didn't mean it...it just seemed to take forever and a day. Well, not Sharie's quilt. I actually whipped that puppy out quite quick. It's just that I told her I'd make it way over a year ago that made it seems so long. I will embroider the baby's name and birth date once she gets here.

Anyways, I think the effort was worth it. They are both gorgeous and I'll be proud to hand them over along with the Mother's Quilts and Joseph's Quilt.

The canvases are the ones I decoupaged for my nephew, Dustin. My sister cross stitched the little panels but couldn't understand how to glue them on artists' canvas...lol she sent duck canvas but hey that's OK! You know I don't do Halloween, but I think they turned out pretty good.

It's cloudy and raining. Jack is home because the job site was a mud pit. I can hear the AFA Blue Angels circling overhead in preparation for Graduation wednesday but I can't see them. I hope it dries up soon.

Well, they are all gorgeous! Love them. I actually finished up mine today as well.

I just woke up from a nap, sigh.

BTW: The Blue Angels are the Navy, we have had the Thunderbirds overhead today.
