Unexpected Gift

I love getting to share how creative and talented my family members are. We had a family birthday party this weekend and among the birthday presents was a wedding present for me and Jay. My aunt used to do a lot of stained glass when I was a child, but she put it aside for many years. I'm so excited that she has taken it back up, especially since I have recently aquired two of her pieces: a Christmas star ornament that is so pretty that it remains hanging in our window year around and now this gorgeous piece of art...


It is going in a window next to our bed where we can see it every morning. I have always loved the changing light that comes through this window and really look forward watching it play with the glass.

I spent a good chunk of Sunday over at Melissa's sewing, I am revisiting a quilt that I have worked on a little bit each summer for the past 5 years. This is the year that it is going to be finished, and soon! I'm hoping to have the top complete and sandwiched before I go off to quilt camp weekend after next so that I can quilt my heart out while hanging out with other funny and inspiring quilters (bring your whip Audrey, I want to get this one done!).

Beautiful glass. The whip is packed and ready to go. They don't call me the hare for nothing. Can't wait for camp - I'm ready for some serious quilting. love you - Audrey
