Come on in and have a cuppa coffee. Let's share, goof around, and giggle.
I have 8 children, 13 beautiful grandchildren, a wonderful husband, 2 of the best dogs in the world, and a sewing room, could my life be any better?
When forty winters shall besiege thy brow,
And dig deep trenches in thy beauty's field,
Thy youth's proud livery, so gaz'd on now,
Will be a tatter'd weed, of small worth held: Then being ask'd where all thy beauty lies, Where all the treasure of thy lusty days,
To say within thine own deep-sunken eyes, Were an all-eating shame and thriftless praise. How much more praise deserv'd thy beauty's use,
If thou couldst answer, 'This fair child of mine Shall sum my count, and make my old excuse,' Proving his beauty by succession thine!
This were to be new made when thou are old, And see thy blood warm when thou feel'st it cold.

Jacob's Ladder: Done
It is finished, bound, and labeled, so now it is in the hands of my wonderful son, Tony this picture is of Tony and Jonathan, his youngest, (Daddy's boy)
Tone loved all the symbolism in the quilt, the three fabrics/his three children, the label was made from one of my Mom's shirts, the thread was my grandmother's, and I buried a button that was my great-grandmothers, so altogether, six generations were represented in the quilt. Hard to do and make it safe for tiny babies, visually pleasing, and still manly enough for a 31 year old son.
