Much excitement yesterday - I skipped and hopped over to the quilter's house (picking out houses I'd like to live in along the way - does anyone else do that?) to collect my liberty print sampler quilt from the sew connected 2 quilting bee.
I loved her from the very start, when she was just a twinkle in my eye, and a pile of fabrics waiting to be cut up and sent out. As she grew into a series of blocks my love for her grew also. When she was a pile of blocks ready to be sewn together my love for her was overflowing. By the time she was a quilt top I didn't think it was possible to have any more love...but I was wrong.
Call me a sap, or a sentimental fool, but in the car on the way home, with her sat on the passenger seat next to me, all wrapped in cellophane, I could have burst.
Last night she was lying on the floor being admired and stroked.
I hate to think what will happen when she gets her binding sewn on. Safe to say I will probably shed a tear of joy or two.
This baby is a keeper, she will be used on our bed, probably get covered in cat hair, and will give me immense pleasure for a very long time.
*sigh* I am one happy lady.
