I was chatting with my Mom today, and she pointed out that I have been neglecting my blog.
I have been working and weeding. And I hope to have 2 finished quilts soon.
But this afternoon, I grabbed my camera.
So Mom…this post is for you.
I love you!

“When you are looking at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.” —Charley Benetto
“Motherhood is the biggest gamble in the world. It is the glorious life force. It’s huge and scary – it’s an act of infinite optimism.” —Gilda Radner
“A mother understands what a child does not say.” —Jewish proverb
I bought a macro lens for myself.
I don’t know the first thing about it, but I practiced with it today.
“A mother’s hug lasts long after she lets go.” —Unknown
“Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.” —Erich Fromm
“A mother’s love is everything. It is what brings a child into this world. It is what molds their entire being. When a mother sees her child in danger, she is literally capable of anything. Mothers have lifted cars off of their children and destroyed entire dynasties. A mother’s love is the strongest energy known to man.” —Jamie McGuire
“A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” —Tenneva Jordan
Stay safe. Stay healthy!

I am happy to say that I have all 13 blocks from the Lets Sew Quilt Along sewn together!
Before the deadline of September 23rd!
My version is 65″ x 67″…a pretty good size…not so much a wall hanging. I’ve taken an indoor photo so you can get an idea of how big it is.
I made a big cutting error when I cut more of the black and white tiles. I cut them bigger than the size that I had planned for.
I was in a hurry. I am absolutely sure that had nothing to do with the error!
I imagined Tim Gunn looking over my shoulder.
Keep calm and carry on.
Make it work.
I think I might need lime around the outside. I may be making one more border. But that is not happening anytime soon.
I have a week off from work, and I am so looking forward to taking a trip!
