Finishing a quilt

I have a friend who had a baby in January and I've been poking along in getting it done.  Last night I finished the front and today I'm going to sandwich it together.  Here are my elements:  one quilt top (squares and long rectangles sewn on machine), cotton batting (unbleached), and muslin for the backing.


I'll take a picture later of what it looks like sandwiched together.

Weeding

Well, I went for a nice walk tonight and was inspired to pull weeds when I got home.  The weed of predominance in my yard is the lovely dandelion.
They never look this pretty to me though.  My children think they are the most beautiful and treasured plant ever.  I have to introduce them to some "real" flowers.  :)
