friday finds ... ta da!

I love friday finds with Kim Klassen ... "it is a place to gather and share ... a place to cherish life's simple pleasures" ... doesn't that sound like such an inviting place?

"it was not anyone's birthday, 
but Bramwell Brown had a feeling
 that today was going to be a special day"

Guess what ... it is such an exciting day ... i completed my very first quilt!  Ta Da!

I found that i just love to quilt ... the exciting fabrics to touch and discover ... the precise measuring and cutting (measure twice, cut once) ... the pressing that gets the fabric nice and crisp ... the sound of my new bernina humming away ...  All such fun!
I decided to tackle just a crib size for my first quilt ... i thought that with a smaller project, i might just get it finished and not find it lying in the back of workroom.

Good decision!

Now i wonder who will have the next baby shower?
