Scroll down a little; there's quilty stuff at the bottom after birds and grand kids. Oh, and there's a giveaway(s) to tell you about!
Speaking of birds, Mrs. Robin had 5 babies! No wonder she built a two story house! She and the dad (I didn't realize the dad's helped) have been taking turns feeding them.

I teased my oldest daughter (the one with 4 children) that the other bird must be the Grandmother. I mean, afterall, I do my fair share of helping with the kiddos from time to time. That's the best part
Alexis and Brayden "driving" the tractor.
Alexis and Brayden stayed with us for a few days while their parents went on a short vacation. We enjoyed them being here. They were perfect, which we knew they would be.

On the quilting front, I've been working on this quilt, Butterfly Love by Late Bloomer Quilts.
I won the pattern from Elizabeth this past fall. At this time I'm trying to choose borders. I think I am going to go with the pink polka dot for the inner border and the green for the outer border. I've "auditioned" fabrics many times, and I keep going back to this. As of right now this is what I'm doing, but my mind could change by tomorrow. This is when I wish that I would have spent the time to learn EQ6. I could "audition" fabrics there on my computer screen! I know it's not to late to learn, but I need to get this quilt finished
There are tons of giveaways in blogland these days. Here's one I know you'll love. Camille Roskelley of Thimbleblossoms is giving away a jelly roll of her new fabric line Simple Abundance. She's back from Quilt Market, and she has a ton of pictures. She's not joking!
