    Back in December, I made a quilt top for my mom out of these diamond shapes that grandma cut out, but grandma died before ever completing the quilt..

    This week, I officially completed half of the quilt - It is twin size and i'm hand-quilting it. I will be giving it to her in June and if the yard doesn't distract me too much - i'll be finished in time!

    It's turning out beautiful. I give so much credit to hand quilters-I just don't have the patience. I would like to try it on a small project someday.

    I played in the dirt last weekend and it was so much fun - still so much to do!! Too cold for the next week or so, so no hard decisions to make!! :)
