The Big Project

Here's the question of the day:

What do you give one of your oldest and dearest friends when she not only gets married , but asks you to be a bridesmaid?


A king-size, hand made quilt that very nearly gets you arrested at the airport on the way to the wedding because it was absolutely necessary to threaten the lives of the check-in agent, the TSA agent, the baggage handlers, the pilot, the co-pilots, the flight attendants, the Air Marshall  and anyone else who might ever even consider losing, damaging, breathing on or thinking about smudging the 15 lbs. of fabric that you just invested nearly a year of your life hand quilting.

Easy right??

Ok, so fast-forward 3 years and same wonderful friend is about to have her first child and sadly, you live several states away and can't make it to the shower.  What do you send her as a baby gift?

Well, the quilt thing is soooo 2007.  

New Baby must have an album!

First, let me apologize for the quality of some of the photos.  I musta been high on Diamond Glaze or somethin' when I took  'em.  Sadly, the insane crooked-ness of  them did not allow me to crop out much of the grubby-craft-table-as-backdrop, nor did it allow for most of the Stickle-y goodness to show. I'll work on that for next time.  

One last thing before I hit the hay for tonight.  

With any gift there must be a card!!

 My list of supplies is reaaaaly long, & it's reaaaaaly late, but if you want to know about something specific, please let me know & I'll be happy to share product info.  

Hopefully, 10 years from now, Miss Morgan will look through her album now & then and know that Mommy & Daddy (and Auntie Gigi!) love her very much!  <3
