Wordy Wednesday

Control Dui and Roxy with Bella's help, for sending me the below which she saw the picture on 

You might remember back in July I had a delightful lunch with these young ladies and their mom

l-r: Sandra, Emily, Nora, Cecilia and Rose

For the last month I've been making these 3 quilted wall hangings
I send them birthday presents each year.
This year I decided to make them, you guessed it... a quilted present.

As I selected each piece of fabric, I had one of these young ladies in mind..

All 3 love cats and dogs
All 3 are Girl Scouts the first one below has a S'mores border
All 3 play piano 2 of them have music notes on back.
All 3 like astronomy (their Dad is a Physics Professor)
The back side of the black and gray one has stars on it.

Emily's bday is in November, Nora and Rose January and February
A light bulb went off...why not send all 3 b-day presents at one time.
Allowing each of them select their favorite.
In Mind's Eye I saw:
The black and gray for Nora
The purple and aqua for Emily
The one with the S'mores border for Rose.
The package is addressed to their mom.  I clued her in on my thinking. She will
let me know which one each girl selected.   I had in mind for them.
On the back of each one a sewed a sleeve which will allow them to insert a small dowel. That is how I hung mine.

Once they have made their selections I'll let you know...

The package was rec'd last Friday.  I sure am glad I sent all 3 at one time.
I was totally WRONG on which one I had in mind for each one.

Here is a photo (taken just before the left for Halloween gathering)


  1. it's amazing what wonderful things you can make with your hands... I wish I had at least a little bit talent to create something nice... but I'm not even able to make some simple warning vests for the boyz LOL

  2. They look fabulous--and will be treasured.

  20. Sometimes we THINK we know how something will turn out but we get surprised - each of the girls looks like they knew precisely which quilt was "theirs" - even if it wasn't quite how you envisioned it they all look VERY happy. Brilliant to make them wall hangings!

    Hugs, Pam
