Because this is my quilting diary. I want to keep things documented correctly. We went to visit my son and daughter-in-law in March. I had something for each of their pups-- Monogrammed Dog collars, something for Eric... and I wanted Carolyn to have something as well.
Eric has always been very cautious and stated, " Don't decorate Carolyn's house.... let her do it." I completely get it and respect what he means. I still laugh when we are all together and and someone will look at Carolyn and look at me when we are having a discussion and then turn to Eric and say, " My God, you have married your mother..." While I don't know how Carolyn feels about it-- I taken it as the utmost in compliments.
Back to the quilt. It was Wednesday before we were to leave on Friday morning when I whipped up four blocks and quilted the piece. My the end of March-- Everyone will welcome anything that says Springtime.... I was literally stitching down the binding in the car on the road trip. That's why I only have the cell phone pictures.
A little nervous, I thought about what Eric said --- and still remained confident the table topper was the right call....
And it was. She loved it.
