The Quilt is Finished!!!

After procrastinating for a few weeks, worried that it would be "too hard", I finally just did it!

I laid out and taped the backing to the floor--

I spread out the batting--

I laid out the quilt top over the backing and batting-

And I pinned it all together--

I machine quilted it-
And here IT is finished---

The front--
And the back--
Although it's not perfect--it is my "1st Quilt Ever"--I'm happy with it.
I LOVE the colors
and most importantly
I learned alot!
I've already started on another quilt!!!

For the Birds---

Looks like there's a new "kid" on the block--
I heard "him" chirping this morning while I was enjoying my coffee on the patio.

As I took a closer look I saw--
A brother or sister-
They look so cute.

Noticed some more movement and then there were--

Momma was getting worried--
So I left her alone to tend to her babies-
And I went back to my coffee.

The mail came!

I love getting packages in the mail.

This is from my blogging friend, Lisa, at
She was having a giveaway and I won.

Love the colors!

What is it?
It's a beautiful scarf---

That she knitted herself.
The pictures do not do it justice.
I wish you could see how beautiful it is---and oh-so-soft!

Thank-you Lisa
Stop by and visit her.
And while you're there take a tour of her Folly--
Don't know what a folly is-
Then you need to visit and find out.
