The Crafty Mummy
I have two rows completed - and there are only four rows - but time is ticking so I plan to make major progress on this later today.
And speaking of quilting, last weekend I attended a family reunion and among the pictures spread on a table, I found this shot of my Great-Grandmother.
Grandma Hattie quilted - totally by hand - for many years, and I am blessed to have two of her finished quilts. One of them was made especially for my mother with scraps from Mom's (clothing) sewing projects. Great-Grandma finished it on her 80th birthday. My mom is now nearing 80 and I see a lot of resemblance to her grandma. I snitched this photo and it now sits next to my sewing machine for inspiration.
And one totally random thought: Does anyone but me love the name Hattie? Technically, it's short for Harriet, but the abbreviated form just sounds so feminine and old-fashioned and lovely. I often regret that we didn't name our daughter Hattie. Daughter doesn't regret it at all!
