Rachael's quilt

This is the quilt I made for Rachael. Let me tell you the story. Rachael just turned 8 in July. Back in April she asked me, "Ms Vicki, I understand you make things." I said yes, I do. Would you like me to make you something. She said yes, and I asked what. Rachael in a tiny voice said a blanket. I told her it would take a few months but I would work on it. Well I missed her birthday, because I didnt know when it was. We, DH,DS and myself too the quilt to her Wed. nite. She grinned from ear to ear. She is very shy, so no hugs, but a tiny thank you and she would not put it down. LOL. Her granddad wrapped it around her. It was sooo cute. And I left the camera home,booo. Made a pillow case from left overs, also.
I havent felt good all week. The dreaded sinus thing. Last nite I sewed crumb blocks. I made 30 blocks. WOW my crumb bag got smaller. YEAH. I really need to work on string now. I think I want to do the star Bonnie has on her web site. will be fun.
