    About a month ago I went to visit my parents in Colorado and went nuts at their LQS buying up fat quarters. About half of these my daughter picked out. They will all eventually turn into tablerunners. I have had fun making the 3 fat quarter tablerunner patterns that I downloaded off the internet. This should add significantly to my pile! :lol: :lol:

    Yes it does. It is an old family name of my DD's husbands family. When we tell people her name they always repeat back Ophelia. Drives my daughter crazy!

    Thanks for asking! She is doing great. She landed a great job with the postal service making more money than she has ever made and she loves it. Her DH still isn't working but hopefully he will soon. They are planning now to get their own apartment instead of living with his parents. Tilly's first birthday is next month and they want her to have her own room. Kelsey bought all the "Cars" themed furniture and decorations for Tilly's birthday!

    For $40 in this neck of the woods, we would get the bottom row.
