The Wedding Quilt Top is DONE

Yes, I've been extremely busy. We never travel or go anywhere. This month we have been gone on long road trips 3 weekends in a row! I"m exhausted. But I did accomplish one thing! The wedding quilt top is DONE!!!! DONE I say!!!! And I had a about a 15" x 40" strip of background fabric left - now that was close! Taking it to the quilter tomorrow!

Last week went to Iowa for my middle daughters White Coat Ceremony. She officially is a P1 student now (1st year Pharmacy Grad School Student). They have a lovely ceremony where they get their white coats. My kids won't even let me take pictures anymore because they say - "its going on the blog". So Here is a picture of her with her white coat and lego head.
