    Look what I got!!!

    I should say look what "we" got, because it's actually my husband's quilt. His mom was doing some cleaning and found this - her mother made quilts for all her grandkids, and this belongs to my husband. Isn't it beautiful? It's all hand sewn.

    It's beautiful! My mom has been cleaning and brought me a "double knit" pant suit she found stashed in her closet. I'd rather have a quilt!!! haha

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
