I just QUILTED my first quilt.

I made it for my youngest grandson's 3rd birthday.

He loves "The Three Little Pigs"! He has even named all the pigs.

I bought the fabric panel that is meant to be made into a fabric book. However, I put borders around each individual page and added some sashing.

Then...I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT...I quilted it myself on my mid-arm machine. This was my first try! Yippee!!!

 The backing is little roads with construction machinery.

I think he's going to love it. (I hope!) It was certainly fun to create!

It looks like Spring is here!

We have little clumps of thin-bladed dark green grass that comes up every spring. I got most of it dug out last year. Maybe this will be its last year!!

I don't mind digging it. I have a tool that works great, and I get to enjoy the beautiful weather.

I don't have many irises left because Maxey doesn't care for them; however, the few that are left are wonderful. This photo is of the first one to bloom this year.
