Lucky Charm






















You know, you don't get such a good helper just any day! Here, we see Little Boy helping to smooth the border - just like Momma does.















Moving right along here - you can see we are a bit further down the quilt. And - Little Boy has changed positions to a safer vantage point - away from the sharp pins with those bare little piggies. And you think your back aches when you have to do floor work? Sissy!








Almost done now, phew! When I look at this photo - all I can do is laugh! Amazingly enough, when I get to the final borders somehow are usually nice and square. He must be my lucky charm - and what a lucky Momma I am!!!
