Anyway, Mom got all excited yesterday afternoon because she just finished sewing the binding onto a quilt she started back in February of 2009. Cam showed it to you when Mom had finished quilting and now it's all done! Mom carefully arranged it on the ottoman by the living room window. Take a look:
|"Hi. What are you doing?"|
Oh. Apparently she was trying to take some photos of the quilt. Whatever. She had said something to herself about "cozy and inviting", so naturally I thought she was talking about me.
She smoothed it out on the floor to get an over-all shot - and that's when I knew she really DID want my help!
|"Cam! Get in here! I need your help with this!"|
How does that saying go? "If you quilt it, they will come"? Something like that.
|"Oh, yeah, Mom. Cozy and inviting."|
"This is for us, right?"
"Well, umm ..."
It sort of is for us -- indirectly. In the center of every block, there is a rectangle of fabric from one of Dad's old uniforms, and all the other fabrics are either military-themed or patriotic. It's very special!
|We ❤ this quilt!|
It will be a great "snuggle" quilt for all of us!
