I actually finished something!

but this was so cute and easy to do it wasn't too hard to keep going.
I love all the scraps that I used and had the perfect amount left for binding.

I was especially drawn to this project because in my bedroom I have a picture of my daughter on a swing. My daughter is now 13 but in the picture she was around 4.
so cute right? I can't even remember her that little and I feel so lucky that I have a picture like this.

Thanks for looking. I will be participating in these blog parties:
