A Milestone Day

As a parent we get to watch our children achieve milestones.  Today was a milestone day around here.  My little baby girl got her permit to drive an automobile!  Okay, so she’s not really a little baby girl anymore but it sure feels like she’s only 2.  I can’t believe she’s soon to be 16!

She was a little ball of nerves driving home but she has to start some where.  She did a fantastic job.  I better watch out…I think she likes my VW!

After I dried my tears and regrouped I managed to finish piecing the last two quilt tops for my step mom.  Now all that’s left is quilting and binding!  Woohoo…I can see the light at the end of this tunnel.  Still looking for the binding fairy, she refuses to show her face around here.


Both of these were originally started by my step mom’s mother.  She embroidered all the blocks before she passed.  I’m simply helping finish what she started.  These lovelies will be passed onto the great grandchildren as keepsakes.

I think that’s all for tonight.  I’m still trying to get over my baby driving.  It’s just so strange!

  1. Congrats to your DD. This is a BIG event!
    It is wonderful of you to finish off these quilts for your family. Hope you are also making labels to show the multi-generational needle artists that made these. That’s what I did for the ones I did. My kids love the labels and stories.
    You don’t like to bind? Golly, I think that’s my favorite part… too bad we dont’ live closer together. lol

  2. Talk about a milestone!!! I am glad we have a long time to go on driving because I am SO not ready for that adventure. The quilts look beautiful! Can’t wait to see how you quilt them!
