    My Quilted Patio

    I just had to share this. DH has been making a little area for me to sit out in next year. of course he didnt tell me what design he was going to do it in..and low and behold I got such a surprise when I saw the finished article. He decided to put quilt stars on it..as he said, I had got so much pleasure from my quilting in the last year, he decided to do a matching design for me..I thought it was really sweet What do you all think??

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
