My dear husband took the day off to spend with me. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. In itself, that is a little mind warping. When did that much time pass? I really can't remember it happening. They say that is one of the first signs of aging. I believe it.
After we got the kids to school we went out for breakfast. I love going out for breakfast...always have. It is way better than dinning out for dinner. By dinner time I'm tired and just want to be cozy. While we were eating he, yes HE, suggested that we check out the local quilt shops. We could go spend the gift certificate I won at guild on Tuesday night. BUT we were just there a few weeks ago. When I suggested that we amble further afield he was game. We ambled north....to Oklahoma. That sounds like a long way to go....but it is only an hour north. We visited three quilt shops...all new to me...all wonderful.
I found the fabric I wanted for this. I can't wait to make it....for me....with a new name for the pattern.
When we got home....in time to pick the guys up from school...I snuggled under this...
Yup...I quilted it for my Mum....as a paying customer to Tops to Treasures....I had watched her making it for years and always thought it looked like Cherry Pie with vanilla ice cream. When I finished quilting it,I teased her about willing it to me. Instead she gave it to Gilbert and I as an anniversary gift. I'll take a better picture of it when the sun comes out.
I opened the mail and was greeted....Mrs. Sew & Sow Loves to Create.
Thank you Nicky! You were the icing on my lovely day.
