Weekend Wrap-up

This weekend, we went to East Texas to stay with my aunt and then all go to one of my cousin's baby shower. This is the quilt that I made for Mason Lee - how cute is that name? Apparently he's due any day. They loved it and it goes perfectly with his nursery.

Hope you can see the hand quilting that I did. It was alot of fun and added some interest I think. Just free-handed it all. I love the bouncing stitches up in that green area the best.

The backing was so soft and I just love how the green binding contrasted with it.

Malek got to ride on a real country tractor with my cousin's husband. He even let him steer. Malek loved it. Later that evening when we were quizzing him on what everyone's name was, when it came to Jason, he just called him Tractor! So I think Jason has a new nickname! So cute. Morning coffee on the porch with Nana. Sorry Mom for catching you with no makeup. *smile*

It was a fast trip but a good one. We had a great visit with everyone - just wished we could have stayed longer. We plan on going back soon to take all the kids on the train (Rusk to Palestine). It runs RIGHT BEHIND my aunt's house. That train whistle was quiet loud!
More stitching to do.....where to begin?


  1. fun pictures and wonderful quilt!

  2. Lovely quilt. I would like to make one for Amelia's dolls. Sounds like a great trip with family.

  3. Looks like all of you had a good time. I'm sure the redbuds were in bloom, but what about the bluebonnets? May be too early yet! I love the little curvy handquilting on the quilt, and the straight too. Confirms it was really handmade. It is so cute! ---"Love"
