A baby boy quilt has been completed except for the binding.
I am pretty sure you can't go wrong with sock monkeys.
I rest my case.
My friend Sandy surprised me the other day with this beautiful quilt she made for me. She said, you are always making quilts for other people and I wanted to make one for you. She assures me that it is soft and cuddly and I should use it to wrap up in. And she is absolutely right. But right now I just want to look at it in all its glory. I want to look at it a lot. Friendship means a lot to me. And to see this tangible evidence of it each time I go into the quilting room just blesses me!
Sandy's sister Peggy quilted my new treasure. Peggy is a new longarm quilter. She's been making quilts for a long time, but recently took the plunge to get a longarm machine for herself. Can I just say that she has totally put me to shame with her beautiful quilting. Isn't it gorgeous!
And because everyone should have several projects going at once (right?) I have a new one I've been pondering for a while up on the design wall. I'm still playing around with placement of the pieces, but so far I like it a lot.
Late night snack - whole grain cereal with strawberries and bananas - yummy!
I am so blessed in so many ways. I am truly thankful. With all its challenges and trials, life is still a wonderful gift.
I do hope there are many, many good and perfect gifts in your life!
Hugs and kisses,
