A few days ago, I got up really early in the morning and took a drive to visit these sweet girls at their new home an hour and a half from me.
I really miss seeing my grand daughters, Maelie and Haven, as much as I used to so our time together was extra special.
While I was there, I also got to visit a few quilts that I have gifted to my son and his wife over the years. It was fun to get reacquainted. I thought that I might introduce you to some of my old friends...
I love this cheerful lady so much. I made her for Adam and Kodie in celebration of their 5th wedding anniversary almost five years ago.
I found this little gal hanging out in the kitchen
where Kodie decorates with a cherry theme.
The blocks were made in a swap challenge with my quilt guild some years ago...
I can't really remember when. It looks so cute on Kodie's table.
I made me happy to see this guy was well loved, maybe a bit dated,
but still looking good
as he hung out in the family room.
He was a gift to my son on his 16th birthday in 1993.
Then in 2000, when Adam graduated from college,
I made this modern looking log cabin.
Remembering all the hoopla accompanying the year
prompted the message on the label.
I recall collecting red and black fabrics for quite sometime
before I started the sewing of this quilt.
(It took a lot of shopping, but someone had to do it!)
Haven keeps this quilt at the end of her bed....
So we got her out and played...
Which was a good reminder of another I Spy quilt that needs finishing.
