Many years ago, when my daughter was little, I made this quilt for her. It was a Debbie Mumm pattern for a wallhanging, which I expanded many times over to make this tulip quilt. I used very pastel colors, rotary cut for the first time (I'd only used templates before!) and hand quilted it. I love this quilt, but as she grew older, she didn't want it anymore. I eventually folded it up and got her store bought comforters and put it away. The other day I pulled it out of the closet to take a picture and put it away once again. I'm hoping that some day her child will want it...although she swears she's never having children! But just in case...I'll keep it safe!
Thank you very much for the kind wishes for my youngest daughter. As it turns out, she has mononucleosis! The test showed she's in the convalescent stage, so she was spared the worst symptoms and only has a mild case. This explains her exhaustion lately! She also had an ultrasound today to look for the cause of abdominal pain she's been having, so we're awaiting the results of that test.
As for me, I had a very nice Mother's Day. My two older children had to work so I didn't expect to see my son at all and would only see my daughter in the evening. I headed over to my sister's house, where we celebrated Mother's Day with my parents, my sister and her son and my brother's family. We also celebrated my nephew's college graduation. Andrew, who sent me 2 dozen roses since he knew he was working and wouldn't be home, surprised me with a visit...but I wasn't home! I convinced him to come to my sister's...it was great to see him and spend time with him. After dinner, I headed home to spend the evening with my youngest and my DH. He stayed home with her because we didn't want her around my little nephews, just in case she was contagious!
I hope to get to some quilting this week...I did start to sew the Underground Railroad quilt together but stopped when I made a mistake! Oh well...there's some ripping in my future...
