For better or worse, I hit a new level of quilt gift giving. One that I only fully appreciated when I was sneaking gift quilts into a funeral home.
She and Alex can now wrap themselves in the Shop Hop Quilt and Blue Lemonade knowing that it's the only hug-on-demand I can manage from 300 miles away.
Later the same day my quilt mentor, best friend, and also long and dear friend of Grant and Kathy made this post about quilts as hugs. Please take the time to follow the link. I think that many of us quilt for this very reason.
I'm thinking that have Hug Quilts on hand may be a new requirement in my life.
But now... well...I'm calling her Genevieve in honor of my g'ma. She has one stitch. "Forward". There are two adjustments...the tension on the left and stitch length on the right. The vibration was moving the stitch length downward, so I had to use some copper "safety wire" to manage the length.
I saw the groom-to-be at the funeral who pulled me aside to let me know he was now engaged. PSHSHHH. Yea, dude, I know....I've already started the quilt. I'm a Mom. We know everything.
