I know, you were thinking I was going to talk about Luke. I do love Luke. I love him very much. He's my best friend. Nothing can replace him. But no, folks, today I'm going to talk about quilting. :) (Because I'm blogging about this, I feel like I just aged 30 years). I LOVE quilting! It is quite insane and probably a little sad at how much I love it. Finishing a project brings an amazing amount of gratification. Right now, I have at least 6 quilts started and ideas for more. There have been times that I have gone to my local quilt shop, Sager Creek Quilts & Yarnworks, 3 and 4 times a week to browse fabric, work on a project, or take a quilting class. I have come to know the owners well and they have introduced me to people as their "most avid, young customer." To me, quilting never gets old and I have a feeling I'll still be doing it when I am old. I come up with excuses to make new quilts and many times, the excuse is a gift. I have made several quilts as gifts, and currently have 3 gift quilts I'm working on. Because I love working on these projects, and have worked on so many, I have begun getting faster and have lately pondered the idea of opening an etsy account... we'll see. Maybe someday.
I made this quilt for my niece Lily. It matched her nursery.
This is Lily's little sister, Bella, on the quilt I made for her.
Lily, the 2-year-old hot mess, and Bella, the 3-month-old sweetheart. Love them! These pictures were taken back in January. I get to watch these girls in a couple of weeks (it will be blog worthy, I'm sure)!

I have more projects in the works, and more than just quilts... stay tuned!
