I won a gorgeous hand quilted quilt!

This quilt was made and hand quilted by the Wheatley Friendship club and I was the lucky winner!! I was shocked, my own mother put many stitches into this quilt, Mom quilts on Mondays and Thursdays. I am so so happy!! I am so glad that the quilting is showing on the picture too.

Summer is halfway over and we have had great weather perfect for a gardener, I have really enjoyed my garden this year and have been keeping up with it pretty good.
I have started going to the gym and finally loosing some pounds, I will have some quilting stuff to show you on the next post. I got a gorgeous mini from my swapee on Kathleen`Tracy`s Yahoo group. I am also investing a little time in a surprise not quilt related but very dear to the heart will post more about that in a couple of weeks sorry for being so evasive.
I have to get some shut eye on nights that is perfect for me so I can enjoy some of the day!

  10. Congratulations on winning that quilt! It is fantastic. Your hydrangeas are so beautiful. I want to buy one for my backyard, where my rose bush is right now - which I am planning to remove. What would you suggest? Should I get an oak leaf? I am intrigued with those lacy ones too. I love your pink day lilies. I must get some of those. Day lilies are my favourite at the moment.
