I do I do I do (well not me anyway)

Hello Everyone! It has been a while since my last blog. Since My last blog I have gone and went from Las Vegas. What a great place to visit. We had such a great time. When I got back from Las Vegas I had to get ready for a co-workers wedding. When I say I had to get ready it is not because I was in the wedding party or anything. I had arranged for all our co-workers to chip in and I made her and her new husband a quilt. They day after the wedding they were already going on their Honeymoon. I was really excited to give my co-worker Laura her quilt. Some of the fun of giving someone something is to see there reactions. With her leaving how can I ask her to call before she goes to Jamaica. I really needed to know if she liked her quilt or not. The day of her wedding Laura was making her rounds to all the guests. The sweetest word came out of her mouth "would you like to come to the gift opening" It was like she read my mind. OF COURSE! I want to go the gift opening.This is the first quilt I made that I am actually giving away. The next day I went to Laura's mom house and joined the gift opening.

 I was on pins and needles. My sister Natasha helped picked the colors and we did not really know her color scheme for her house so we were taking a chance.

With much relief she loved the quilt! The first words from her husbands mouth."How did you know the colors of our bedroom?" I didn't we took a guess and we came out on top.

To Laura and Adam:
I wish you many years of happiness together and thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!
Now you need to have some little kids so I can make some baby quilts.
Love Miriam
