Thou shalt not covet.

But you will.

A few weekends ago MIL and I went to visit hub's aunt and uncle in Weatherford.
We had a grand time, as we always do.

Dear sweet talented Aunt Gay, who I have mentioned before is my quilting muse, gave me the most wonderful quilt she made for our new house. And I should mention it is perfectly charming. And I completely adore it. And no you can't have it. (By the way, hubs still holds his Aunt Gay responsible for strong arming him into buying me what he considered a ridiculously expensive sewing machine. Man I love that woman....and my Pfaff)
You're kinda coveting right now aren't you?

I think I have read somewhere that it is ok to covet...handmade quilts.

I'd love to know what type of sewing machine you have. I am sewing on a dinosaur of a machine, and though I am counting my blessings (at least I have a machine) I do one day want to invest in a much nicer one. :o)
You are so blessed to have such a beautiful quilting hanging on your wall, by a family member. Do you ever display your quilts? If so, how? I am still working on my first "real" quilt. Learning as I go. :o)
Have a great weekend Brooke.
Love,
Trish
