Happy Sweet 16

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.

You have seen Pictures before, but here is the finished product. Yahoo!

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
Love you with all my Heart,
G'Ma Lynnie
