VACATION & Quilt top picture

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I am excited. We are planning a short vacation. This will be the first "vacation" I have had since July 2011. We will go up to Estes Park and stay where we honeymooned almost 34 years ago. It will be nice to get away, relax, take hikes and just not be home!

I did finish the quilt top this afternoon while the kids were napping. While sewing I had some good memories of my mom as I was using material from her stash. The dark brown and tan print fabrics are double knits that were hers. The cream is a flannel from my stash.
