About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

I want to make this Quilt, I love the neutrals paired with the Bold color and it looks like the next step for me to step out of my beginner stage. Dont call me Betsy Says she is going to walk us through the steps next of her own pattern and the stars promise to be easy, I am not so keen on making stars. She is even going to help me with color selection. I have several bundles but need help with solids and I want to try the MM Couture Solids, She says they are really soft. Also, there is going to be a sponsor with a discount to help buy what I need. Whoot ! Jump over to her Blog and see how Talented she is and she has had quite a few Big finishes.
