coming along...

After school today I decided to drag out the iron, and work on my spring quilt.
I ironed all of my rows and stiched them together to make this lovely quilt top :)

After that I layed out the backing, batting and quilt top and started to pin, pin, pin.
Then it was time to start the quilting!

And the finished, quilted quilt...

do you want to see the cutie-pie backing fabric?

Tomorrow, I will bind it and then cuddle with it. Yep, that's the plan :)
Also, can I just say that I have the most amazing online friends?
I do.
for real.
Today, I received one of the most thoughtful, kind, and personal gifts in the mail. Each item was placed in the envelope because they all were things I adored.

It doesn't get any better than that.
Dear Jenny-Lynn,
You made my entire month.
Thank you for being so kind and wonderful.
I am soooo glad that we have become great friends.
I love you.
Ok friends, I am off to bed! I have a garage sale to get ready for this weekend. I have soooo much stuff to sell but not a lot of time to get it all priced and set up! eeeek!
On a side note, my parents are hoping for something really exciting to happen tomorrow. If you pray, please pray that it happens for them :)
love love love you.
