I got a package yesterday...

No, it wasn't more stash! :) My grandma made a quilt for the baby! She's made quilts for both my boys, but it was still a surprise to get in the mail yesterday. I love the border on it!


Quilt - no flash



I also got started on block #2 the other day. I haven't got much done because I spent a good part of the day cleaning out the kid's room. I took out three huge garbage bags worth of junk!! It's just amazing how fast it accumulates! Anyway, here's my progress pic...


VORHR - block 1 and 2



Sorry it's not the greatest pic... feeling lazy today! :) Write more later!

  3. Your quilt is so beautiful and you are so lucky to have a sweet grandma to make something so lovely for you and your baby!! I am so enjoying watching your continued progress oh Village of Hawk Run Hollow! You have gotten so much done and it is just beautiful. I wish I could afford to get it for me, but watching others is so inspirational. You really do beautiful work!
