Celebratory Announcement or Warning?

 The weather did not want to cooperate with me while photographing this quilt.  I kept hoping it would get better.  As it turns out I should have taken the picture soon rather than later.  I was raining while I took it and that rain was trying to turn into snow.  So sadly no fun pics with this quilt. Just this one on the side of the shed. But it is finished.  I quilted cathedral windows all over and bond it with a navy print.

On this blustery day I also took my DD to get her learners permit.  Look how excited she is as she shivers in the rain turning snow.  This is one of those mixed emotion days for mom.  So happy and excited for her.  Sad to see my baby getting so big.  Scared to be driving with a new driver again.

    YES!! I can relate. My son is around that age. I wish I had a break pedal on my side of the car sometimes. LOL

    Oh yep. Seems like just yesterday I was sending warm protective light around my daughters as they drove the first times to their part-time job…now they each navigate big cities no problem on a daily basis! I had some fun with the weather this week too..love your quilt and it looks great on the shed!

    We're a long way off driving licenses around here (phew) but I do love her look of excitement! A beautiful quilt too, even if the weather didn't want to play fair!

  • Sarah Craig says:

    I can relate, even though it's been a while since I had a new driver in the family! But Lilli is definitely looking forward to her time in the sun… Your quilt is lovely!!

    Beautiful quilt, I love how scrappy yet coordinated it looks. And good luck to your lovely daughter, too! 🙂

  • Needled Mom says:

    Ha….I can relate. Now it is training the grandchildren.

  • scraphappy says:

    My daughter had her learners permit too — as much as I want her to be independent, it is so scary. Love the quilt!

  • Mary Ann says:

    Well, my daughter would NOT drive, so for a year I still drove until I put my foot down and said if we are going any where, you are driving. She finally learned to meaning of freedom, lol

  • Trumkle says:

    Yes I can! My DS received his learner permit last month and my DH had him driving in the field out back. We have moved to the road for short trips almost daily.

    Love the quilt!
