Back from visiting Lily, and some other things...

Well, I am back! I went to Colorado last week to see my sister Nikki and her new baby Lily. It was so much fun. Nikki is a wonderful mommy. And little Lily is pretty cute, I almost took her home with me :)

Here is me, my brother Casey, and my sister Nikki... we haven't all been together for a long time, so we had to take the pictures you know.

On my way to Colorado, I had a layover in Salt Lake. I got to see my Aunt Phyllis!! She is looking so good. I miss her.

In other news, I've begun quilting my red and white quilt.

I really like this backing fabric I found, it's by Amy Butler, cute huh?

I've been working slowly but surely on Shores of Hawk Run, I have a boat!

And look at these cool books I found, making skirts, and clothes and whatnot. I can't wait to try some of them out...

My cute, adorable children. My gosh, I love them :) How come they are growing up so fast??

Nikki is absolutely adorable. Do love your red and white quilt and the backing is so perfect! Great progress on Shores. That Block seems the most indimidating of all of them because of it's size. I'm about to start Block 4.

Love your Red and White quilt including the backing and really would love to know what pattern you have used, I have a stash of red and white fabric that needs to be transformed into a quilt. Thanks
