Oh what a happy happy birthday girl she is going to be!! That is gorgeous! As I looked through you blog I just love them all! My biggest trouble is being able to work the sewing machine. hahaha ohhh what a sight! The wow I can't imagine putting together a puzzle like these.

Thanks for the beautiful comment/post you left me. Oh my yes, UofL and UK do not mess around up here with the rival between the schools and games! That sure makes it fun especially because they do have good southern friendly manners about it! Congratulations to your wonderful daughters what accomplishments!!

I wonder are you in this area too?
Being from South Central Texas, we hardly lost leaves on trees for the winter. So I just love the changing season. I couldn't believe my first fall! I thought those colors only came in paintings. I don't mean to complain about the snow I still get excited about every flurry. We never had them growing up. I'm just seeing everyone post about Spring and I'm kinda ready! The winters being colder does make you appreciate spring more.

Happy Quilting!
