Quilt Finish - Water Lily
I finished the Water Lily quilt. I just love it! I made it for a friend and it's wrapped and ready to go today. The details of the quilt are here. Make sure to take a look at Jodi's quilt using the same pattern, it's gorgeous! I rarely if ever put photos of myself on the blog. Yes, I have body image issues like every other woman I know, but at 51, it's time to get a grip. I really like seeing pictures of other bloggers. It makes them more real to me, not like I'm communicating with just the screen, ya know? So here I am, with some of my girlfriends on a getaway last week. I am second from the left and yes I'm short…5'2". The last one I took a few minutes ago with my timer set. So hello friends!

Your quilt is beautiful Renee. There's nothing wrong with being 5'2 which is what I am. The bad thing is when your 3 boys look down on you! LOL!ReplyDelete
