Mom's Quilt

I'm writing today from the back porch of my parents' house in Vermont. It's so quiet here - just woods, birds, and a wild rabbit that keeps trying to eat the flowers in my Mom's garden. I love being home.

I gave Mom her birthday present - a handmade quilt that I've been working on since February.

It looks so at home right on the porch.

I'm getting more and more confident in my quilt-making skills - much thanks is due to Elizabeth over at Oh Fransson! She posted the amazing tutorial that I followed to make this quilt. If you're interested in getting into quilt-making, her directions are incredibly comprehensive and understandable!

My Mom loved it. Yay!

Today Mom and I took on our own little project: making a ruffled clutch like the yellow one I made for Emily. We have coordinated clutches now! She went out with hers tonight to meet her co-workers for a party, and I'm headed out with mine to - Circus Smirkus (one of my favorite youth arts organizations)!

The week is going by so fast!
