Hey!

I finally finished Daniel's quilt! It took me a whole month, but we've been busy. We are probably going to combine households with Larry's mom, and our brains are a swirl of all the different houses we've looked at.

We've lived here for 32 years, and as you can imagine, moving ourselves and all of our necessities - you know, fabric and such - will be a daunting task.

Every conversation begins something like this: " . . . yes, but remember the one with the lovely back yard? Well, yes, a three car garage would be nice, but the other one had such a nice sun porch." It turns out that a house that has every single appealing feature the five people involved find attractive is way beyond our means. Imagine that! Compromise is going to be involved.

I love the quilt, Diana! It makes me think of a stained glass window. I know what you mean about all the choices and decisions when buying a house. We've been through that a few times. Good luck! I hope you find the perfect one. :)

Thank you, Daisy! That's what I like about that quilt pattern, too. I appreciate your good wishes regarding the house hunt. It's hard! At some point we just need to make a decision. :0}

The quilt is beautiful and I love the colours so much. A month doesnt seem too long to me for a quilt I am still on one from a long while ago.

Good luck with the house hunting its a hard place to be in at times, deciding on the right home and then always thinking of all the homes you have seen.

Thank you, Suzanne! I realized a while ago that I had never made a quilt for Daniel - not even a little one, so I asked him what he would like and this is what we came up with.

We're getting close to a decision on the house. . . I think. Thank you for your good wishes.
