Three for September --I worked on a different WIP for three days at a time all month.
The main WIP I wanted to finish got a label Thursday morning, and yesterday my sister and I showed up at our Uncle Fred's senior living facility to deliver the quilt. We surprised Uncle Fred in a common area, in the middle of a card game with three ladies, one of whom was familiar with our family through her sister (whose son married my best friend Toni. Still following?)
Uncle Fred obliged by letting me drape the quilt over him blanket style. Never very talkative, he was still quite pleased and enjoyed the feline QC photo I showed him--he has a cat that looks like my Mini. The ladies were all very complimentary and I appreciated their kind words.
Disclaimer on the next pic: I am lousy at selfies!
A bit blurry, but still wonderful to have gotten this pic. As we were leaving the facility, coincidentally the sister of the card player was coming in and we stopped and chatted with Mrs. Weeks. (Aside to my best friend: How about that, Toni?)
I sent a picture of the finished quilt to Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville, the designer of Narragansett Blues from her book MORE Leaders and Enders, and she posted it on her Facebook page with very nice words about my version. Lots of folks liked my quilt, which made me very pleased.
Good news was also received from my nephew and his new bride--they received the package and his wife "loved the placemats, as they matched her kitchen". Such a sweet thing to hear.
Tomorrow I will wrap up the Three for September self-challenge. It has been a good time.
