Got It Done in spite of things



There's a story behind this quilt I made for Barbara. It was a long time in the making for starters and then when I sent it to the quilters it came back with puckers, pleats and the back completely uneven. As big a difference as 3 inches on one end to 6 inches on the other. In my hysteria, between Susan Nixon and my DH they got me calmed down. lol I went ahead and "undid" where I could and did the binding with the intent of giving it to Barbara with the story of what happened. Then making her a new one. Well bless her heart, as she opened it and I was telling her what happened, she kept saying no she didn't want another one she wanted only this one. lol :) Friends are so amazing, no matter how flawed an item or WE are they love us anyway. What a wonderful Christmas present she gave me. (that's Barbara standing next to the quilt:) )
We had a great time all day with the family and of course ate till we couldn't move and will be eating left overs the rest of the week. I hope everyone's Christmas was as good as mine and hope we're all looking forward to a very very Happy New Year.
