turkey day quilt

This is the first year I won't be spending Thanksgiving day with my family in Pennsylvania.  As a newly married woman, I realize I have to compromise, but it is still difficult to be apart from your loved ones on the holidays.

I woke early this morning and made up my mind that I was going to finish the quilt that I started last spring.  The fabrics are so bright and cheery, and I can't wait to gift this to someone special. My husband's niece is just over a year old, and she is one of the happiest babies.  This quilt will be perfect for her as she moves into toddler territory.

I have greatly missed the feel of the fabric between my fingers, and since the school year has slowly steadied, I have anxiously started planning new projects while attempting to complete half-finished ideas-in-the making.

My hope is that I do not fall off the face of the earth again.  Then again, I was planning a wedding...
