A stainglass lighthouse

This is my latest quilt project. It was created with a pattern from a quilting book that my parents gave me for Christmas and material that my grandmother had. I learned a few things about quilting with small pieces from this project. Apparently pieces should be cut just a bit larger so that you can cover the seams easily. The quilt looks okay and Brian really likes it. We were going to put in on the wall above our fish tank in the living room but now it hangs in the master bathroom instead. I haven't chosen my next quilt idea yet but it won't be long before I have a new project to keep my hands busy.

nothing new

Once again I have no pictures to post. It's been an uneventful year thus far for us. Brian is enjoying his spring break from college classes and spending his time playing on the Wii instead of getting caught up with homework like he should be. He need a break though. I've been swamped with work at the hospital so I am really glad to be able to put my feet up a relax for a few days. I'm going to enjoy my cup of hot chocolate and watch the robins dig for worms around the yellow daffodils.
