Introducing Nana

May 26, 2011

This is Nana!

Nana is multi-talented… not only is she a very partial grandmother to her own grandchildren (can you blame her!? … haha) … she also creates these wonderful works of art:

This was Claire’s birthday gift from her.  The picture really does not do it any justice – it is a beautiful quilt all hand quilted… it has cute little bunnies on it and is super soft!!

Colton’s birthday is coming up and Nana just could not wait to give Colton his gift since she already had it finished!

Colton is really into dinosaurs right now so this quilt could not have come at a better time!  She also made him a pillow case to match!  The back is colorful polka dots and it too is so soft!!

My husbands mom loves to quilt and always has multiple quilts going at once.  I think that we may have close to 18 different quilts/throws that she has created – they are all treasures!

She is not only amazing with a needle and thread, but she has quite the green thumb too… see:

Are these peonies not just gorgeous!?… and this is 5 days after she picked them from her back yard!

Love you Nana!
