    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love the little trees in the windows as well as the large tree of knowledge/life; obviously a Christmas present with the trains in and the snow.
    Many ideas and desires but not enough hours in a day - I love quilting

    Spectacular train quilt! My husband, a huge train fan, would just love that quilt. I have made two train quilts but they cannot compete with this quilt. I have never seen that kit.

    Is that "Tree of Life" blocks in the corners? The dotty background looks like stars maybe and the train bordes hold it all together. Great job.

    That is beautiful! If my husband had given me this to make I would have run the other way.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I love your quilt. It reminds me of the Chattanooga Train station I visited many years ago in tennessee. It was such fun to see. What a nice memory, thanks for the walk down memory lane.

    There is a train museum in Carson City that he would love if you guys are ever out this way.

    Beautiful quilt and you did an amazing job on it. Sure looks like a lot of detail sewing but I bet it was fun to do.

    That quilt is absolutely beautiful. Your DH did great in picking that one & you did a fantastic job in making it. It would have taken me 10 years to make something like that. I love it!
