Well my oldest Granddaughter will be 16 on the 9th. Yahoo! We are taking her out to dinner tonight at her favorite restaurant that we take her to every year - Olive Garden.
Then she gets to go to the mall and pick out a gift. We have done this for several years because we don't want to be the type of Grandparents that get a 13 - 14- 15 year old a stuffed squirrel on a slab of wood, because it looks like them. (I was grateful, but would have liked something else) :) I have several wonderful memories of that set of Grandparents, the squirrel was just not one of them.
So this year I have a little extra surprise - kinda, her quilt is finally done. I have been working on this for over 2 years. It was my first real quilt that I started out of scraps and learned as I went. I also hand quilted every thing except the borders. The center was cross-stiched off a drawing I made into a pattern when I was much much younger.
Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
Love you with all my Heart,
