In her retirement, my mom has taken up quilting. There is an adorable little quilt shop in Forest Lake, and they offer beginner quilting classes. As her first project, she made Lydia this quilt for her crib. She finished it up while we were in Minnesota, even hand quilting the edges with a heart pattern. It is currently over the back of our rocking chair, since it's too hot for much of anything right now here in Austin, but already, Lydia likes to snuggle it to her face while we read before she goes down for a nap or bedtime. Isn't it beautiful?
