Shipping back to the East Coast in the morning! This Quilt was so relaxing! Lots of freehand feathers and ditching. I’m one of those who actually likes to ditch! 😳 .

Lots of quilters ask if the fabric I used in Poppa’s Tree Farm is still available... unfortunately it is not. However, I found some fun substitutes today @loulousfabricshop ...swipe to see Hometown Christmas by @sweetwaterfabric and Jingle Birds by Keiki.
Free digital Pumpkin Spice pattern with purchase of Poppa’s Tree Farm pdf on Etsy through tomorrow.

We kissed our Lucky boy goodbye 3 years ago and the tears still continue to flow. Now our family is ready to bring another ‘lucky’ into our life’s... We met the sweet expecting mom and the handsome dad today and look forward to January when our little one is born. Thanks Dick!! What a beautiful place you have.

So I saw this hat on this girl @kc71595 (Krista) at Joann Fabrics and could not resist asking where she got it. She said she made it. I continued shopping and couldn’t stop thinking about how stink’n cute it was. I went back and asked Krista if she’d make me a couple hats for by son’s girlfriends. Ah.... she did such a great job!!!! @erinmay10 received hers tonight!! Krista, thank you soooo much!! Your handy work is perfection!! ❤️
