Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Surprise!!!

I mailed a package last week.  I’ll help you figure out where it went!

If you guessed Texas, you’re pretty smart!  In April of 2008 (yes, almost three years ago) I made Mom a quilt.  The story is here.  And then it sat in my bin of quilt tops until last week.  I kept thinking it needed custom quilting and I couldn’t do it.  The plan was to send it to her and she was going to find someone to quilt it, but I never got around to mailing it.

Anyway, last week I found my quilting courage and just went after it.

I just did loops in the red squares and into the light part of the nine patches.  It worked great, except I couldn’t see where I was going on the red squares.  Oh well!  Nobody else can see it either.

And here’s the center.

I got a phone call from Mom today.  She didn’t know the quilt was coming.  When she saw the box was from me, she figured she’d have to find a quilter.  You have to get up really early in the morning to stay ahead of Mom!!!

The quilt will hang on the wall in the playroom at Mom’s house.  She has a really cool red wood table and chairs and they should be a great match!

So, now you know the secret from last week!
