    At Easter my mother in law showed me her work in progress! She has patience that I don't have. She is hand stitching all of this quilt. It is going to be the grandmothers flower garden or something like that. These pieces have taken her 2 weeks. She works full time also though. It would take me that long to do one if I had to hand stitch anything.

    I commend anyone who hand stitches one of those.
    When we were cleaning out my mom and dads house, I KNEW there was a Grandma's Flower Garden Quilt that my mom had started. I went looking for it, but found out my brother tossed it out to the dogs house. I was soooooo mad!!
