I made this....
and sent it off to -------- someplace very far away early last week. It is still in transit as far as I know.
Saturday, completely having forgotten that I would receive a quilt as well, I got a package in the mail.
It was filled with sweet surprises. Have you ever eaten a Mountain? Chocolatey goodness....that you can't get where I live....which is a very good thing. My boys declared them deliscious.
Eeeeeek! Isn't this adorable?!
Karen did an amazing job.
Even the back tells a delightful story.
And....because I know she would want me to share this bit of silliness....which still has me blushing just a bit......
She made this for me too. I have to tell you a story.....
49 years ago a young couple was about to have a baby girl. As most couples do, they thought long and hard about what to name her. They finally settled on Cynthia Anne.
There is a neigh sayer in every crowd, and this family was no exception. Great, great grand-ma was not pleased. She was a very religious lady, had raised two children who became Christian missionaries, and adamant. "Cynthia" was no good. A name like that would eventually get shortened. "Cyn" was not the sort of name that a good Christian girl should have.
Poor, poor, grandma. My name did indeed get shortened. Many of my closest friends and family members call me Cyn. I even sign my name that way on occasion. And now this. Oh dear.
Thank you Karen for all of it! You are a great partner.
