Validation

This is all the validation any quilt maker could ever hope to receive. You may recall an earlier post where I showed a photo of a recently completed Picture Play quilt, made especially for our great-niece in Illinois. I snapped this photo a week ago last Sunday evening of that very same little girl sleeping under her brand-new quilt. Her Mommy told me that she slowly fell asleep as she quietly ran her finger from patch to patch, naming each object one by one. Is there any greater joy than this? I can't think of a single one.

Life is Good!

That's the kind of appreciation every quilter lives for, isn't it? What an adorable little girl, and she's happily nestled under HER very own quilt.
You did a wonderful job on the quilt, by the way.

Nane said...

Yep it makes it extra special when you see a gift like this getting used. I am sure she will grow up to treasure this important new part of her childhood.

What an adorable picture. I have a granddaughter about that size and when I hear her say repeatedly "You made this for ME" with a squeal in her voice it is a million thank you's in my heart. Children are our most thankful critics. Have a great day.
