    Update on My Nephew's Graduation Quilt

    We went to my brother's Saturday for his son's graduation. It was so fun to see everyone. This picture shows how happy and excited Tyler was about his quilt. He liked it so much every time a new group of kids came though the house he had to show it to them and show where I had quilted his name on it so he coule reclaim it if it's ever stolen.

    The day before was my Boss's retirement party. He loved his quilt too. He said he was honored to have it.

    I got paid a million times over with hugs!!
