    i had a few close calls but did manage to get all 7 days in for the 15 minute challenge with the group found at Kate at Life in Pieces.

  • we've been helping the wonderful daughter to move on to the next adventure in her life. she'll be working on her master's degree and living a few hours away in a new apartment. so once again out of town a lot. the good news is i managed to finish the (easily carried along) pink lemonade quilt.
    when i got to the machined part of the binding i was at home just long enough to get it sewn on and pack it back up again for the last of the handwork done on yet another road trip.
    i'm pleased to say that even the label is done.

    this cute piece is one of the pink lemonades done as a quilt-a-long project with Lori at Humble Quilts.
    there's a whole dolly quilt show of these cuties here. if you've never been there you should definitely link over and check out this great blog.
    and i still totally love those frolicking bunnies on the back~!!~

    recent gifts include:
    • robins loudly announcing the onset of spring as i woke up 
    • a warm sunny day
    • the satisfaction of finishing
