You may have gathered from my last post that I was not intending to keep this quilt for myself. The quilt was already on it's way to CA to live with my mom and I wanted to surprise her so didn't let the cat out of the bag. She loves it!! Loves the cozy warm and vibrant color that it brings to her favorite reading spot. It's made sturdy so she can share it with her kitty friends, Max and Misty. I also tucked in a package of homemade Anise Pistachio Cranberry Biscotti ~ I made it just the way she likes it. Gosh but it feels good to surprise someone special. Real good!
