I Love It!

I received the most amazing, awesome, perfect, wonderful gift for my birthday this year! It came from Carolyn and her daughter, Amanda, and it is a gorgeous hand-made quilt that they both worked on!

I actually saw this quilt when it was being made a couple of months ago and I fell in love with it. The colors are my favorite and I adore rag quilts. I dropped a few subtle (?) hints that I would totally love to get this for my upcoming birthday, but knowing the time and effort and $$$ that goes into a quilt, I never thought I would actually receive it. In fact, I totally forgot all about it.

So when Carolyn gave it to me I was seriously shocked, surprised and delighted! I held back the tears, but I was so very touched.

Thank you so much Carolyn and Amanda. This is one of those special heartfelt gifts that will be forever treasured. Hugs to both of you!!
