Pretty Pictures


It's been a crazy weekend, crazy in a good way as I had a lot of fun making three market quilt tops in less than a week.  I heart them all and will share them as soon as I can.  So this afternoon I was blessed with that wonderful way of feeling "caught up."  Just for a minute, anyway! To make my afternoon even better, my friend Korindi dropped off some amazing photos she took for me!



I'd been wanting to get a fun picture of my Swoon quilt for awhile, and there are some wonderful places to take pictures close to where I live!



I really, really heart this picture above...it sort of sums up all that's good about where I live--open fields, blue skies, and green grass (and I especially love living here now that we are having some amazing weather)!


Normally I do whatever it takes to stay out of pictures, and I don't normally share photos of me on this blog; however, it sure is fun to have picture of me with a beautiful quilt and a basket of fabric...thanks Korindi!

PS...my next post will have a sponsor giveaway...see you soon!
