"LoNgArM LoVeLeTTerS" for a baby boy at Christmas~

A special "Loveletter" from a mom to her baby boy~

 "On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder,
 that the stars peeked in to see you,
and the night wind whispered,"Life will never be the same again."

A call out to my QUILTY friends for scraps of cotton!!

We had such a good time yesterday working on our quilts for Craft Hope.
We had a great meeting and then a shopping spree for some backing fabric for the two quilt tops~
You can take a peek on their blog for all the updates!
Here is a peek at the pink top!

Here is a picture of the next series of charity quilts that the girls will be creating. This is where YOU, all my Quilty friends come in!

A start....a middle..... and a finish.....

I took a wonderful field trip to a lovely quilt shop in Cambridge Ma. recently called Gather Here~
It is chock full of beautiful everythings.....
Liberty fabrics for one....on 60 inch bolts......
Oh! Joy!

Then it was off down memory visit my Alma Mater....
My hospital school of first apartment....the streets I walked and walked as a 19 year old....Harvard square....
I could be swept away with melancholy if I am not careful....

The thing that saves me is this....I met my husband here....on these streets that we walked..

And I took him home with me after graduation.....#best.decision.ever.

Back at the ranch I am finishing the white on white quilting for the "Redwork Girls" Cali quilt~
 Pretty ladies....
 And in the in between times I am working on the borders for my Flower garden quilt...each strip is prettier than the next.....A great big "Thank You!" to Quilters Way in Acton MA. for a great 12 month class!
 Personalizing and playing with my "Wonky basket" quilt....
 all the children will have a basket to call their own.....
 As I was ironing....(strips, not!) I glanced up and reminded myself...
