A Quilt for ME!

I received a gorgeous handmade quilt for Christmas from my sister, the family quilter, Sandy. She named it the Pumpkin Patch Quilt. It was quilted by a very talented woman in Maine, Margaret who just started her long arm quilting business. She does amazing work. I saw Sandy's quilts and they are just stunning. Mine has Pumpkins in the quilting. It's so cute! You can see more pics of the quilt on Sandy's Blog, HERE.
Sandy was a quilting away all the time I was in TX; she was a quilting maniac! LOL! Which totally explains how she made two HUGE quilts to give as gifts and sent off two more to be quilted while I was there. I was on vacation so no quilting for me, hee-hee.
I have yet to unpack my suitcase but I did sleep wrapped in my sisters arms last night, so to speak. I was warm and toasty in Sandy's great big hug...my very own Pumpkin Patch Quilt. Thanks Sandy, I love it...
OMG! I almost forgot to mention that my other sister gifted me TWO sets of gorgeous flannel jammies... you should see the mess on my kitchen table...I had to tear through the suitcase to dig them out. Now how was I supposed to sleep under my new quilt in my old PJ's? LOL! I'm so bad, I literally pulled out my new PJ's and left the mess. I piled it high and it's still waiting to be dealt with. But I do have my gorgeous red snowman jammies and my new quilt.... so I'm feeling pretty happy right about now, LOL! Thanks for the jammies TChoco. They were like icing on my cake! I love 'em... Hope your Xmas was full of love and laughter. Family, it's a good thing! B=)
