Baby Quilt

A few days ago, when I was suffering from major sleep deprivation, my friend Lauren called and asked if she could stop by and bring the DVDs I left at her house. Much to my surprise and joy, it was all a ruse! She and our other friend Colleen brought me this:
a baby quilt for Ginger. There are a couple of things that make this awesome. First, Lauren is pregnant with two small kids, and Colleen, who probably wishes she were pregnant, has 3 small kids. Quilting takes some time, my friends, which they don't have much of. Second, it's the first time anyone has made me a quilt. Third, while on the phone with Lauren, I told her of this awesome fabric I had seen in the store and really wanted a reason to buy. This quilt is made from that fabric. Do they know me or what?
Ginger really likes it. We took it to the YMCA during Mini-me's ballet class, and it received many compliments.
I have good friends.

The quilt is beautiful. Ginger is a lucky lady to have a mom who hangs with such talented company.

Wow! You have awesome friends. I wish I knew people as awesome as they are. I mean, talk about being kind, and generous, not to mention incredibly talented. I'll bet they're pretty too. And funny.
:) Glad you like it!
