I finished John's quilt last week, and surprised him with it last Saturday! He was totally surprised and very pleased! Yay!
I had to confess all the little fibs I kept telling him while I was trying to get it done, like.......
......."text me when you're heading home from Portland, so I'll know to make dinner or not!"
......."I was going to work in the garden today, but a snapping turtle was in there all day, so I just stayed inside. That's why the garden isn't in yet!" (That is one partially true, cuz there WAS a snapping turtle in the garden, but not the whole day! lol)
......."I don't really feel like playing golf today......but you go ahead honey! And give me call so I'll know to wait lunch for you or not!"
I was finishing stitching the binding on while he was out mowing the lawn.......I kept having to stop, and listen, to make sure he was still mowing. My hubby is VERY interested in my projects, so it was really hard to hide what I was making! I pretty much had to it while I knew he was out of the house! He is VERY hard to surprise! lol
So here's the finished quilt........
Well, we're heading for the cape for a big festival in Yarmouth, MA. We've been asked to fly kites at it for 4 days, down on the beach, and the weather is supposed to be awesome! I'm so excited!
And the second I get back on Thursday night, I'm doing crazy fast laundry, cuz I pick Pat up at 7:00 on Friday morning and we're headed for the Vermont Quilt Festival! Woot! We're staying over two nights, and we plan on taking in the Shelburne Museum as well! Woohoo! Pictures to follow! :o)
It's going to be such a fun week! I hope you'll have a fun one, too! :o)
