I've been doing well, so far, on keeping gifts a surprise, though it's been hard. I wanted to pick up the phone numerous times this week and tell her how cute the quilt was turning out! I resisted...and I'm so glad I did! I just love surprises!
The other part of the surprise was that I made L a doll quilt to go along with her baby quilt. I have gone a bit doll quilt crazy since making the one for the giveaway and have now decided that I should make some sort of doll version of all the quilts I make. How cute would that be?! I can use them for the quilt wall! We'll see if I actually do it, but in my head it is a great idea!
Lastly, I am happy to report that I have now figured out how to properly hand sew on a binding and have it look good! I might even venture to say that I don't hate hand sewing anymore...well, I almost don't hate it!
So, again, Happy Birthday Leslie! We all love you and are glad you are our sister! (And I'm glad you loved your gifts! It was well worth the biting of the tongue this week!)
