Friday afternoon and I'm off work - yipyee! This weekend will be devoted to getting the northwest medical team quilt quilted, as well as packing for my quilt retreat next week. I can hardly wait to see my online quilty friends again!
We went to our daughter's and son-in-laws on Wednesday, so I took along the quilt. I have the sweetest daughter in the world! Here is the note that waited for me in my email this morning. I'm so glad they like the quilt.
I thought I'd let you know that it was quite nice sleeping under the quilt last night. When I got in bed, I snuggled all down into the bed, and it was like you were tucking me in. :) We both still love the quilt!!!! It's amazing!!!!!
I love you!
I need to confess to a boo-boo. When I was quilting the Quilt Pink quilt this past weekend I stopped with the needle in the quilt to pick something off the floor. Unfortunately when I stood up I hit the machine hard with my body, causing the machine to move about an inch to the right and ripping a tear in the quilt. I knew sooner or later I'd tear a quilt - I guess every longarmer does at least once - so I'm so glad it wasn't a customer quilt! It's not just the top - it's the backing too. I'm glad it was this quilt, because I can fix it pretty easily. I'll just appliqué a scattering of pink hearts across the front, including one over the hole, and I'll place the label over the hole in the back. I hope once is enough and I never do that again!
My bit of important news for the week is that our granddaughter-to-be has a name - Sophie Marie. Old fashioned and sweet - I like that!
