When I was quilting Making Ends Meet, I remembered how much Nicole loves orange. I had planned to give it to her for her birthday and then she was talking about how much she hates purple so I decided I wouldn’t give it to her.
Last week she was downstairs and she came upstairs and said “I found a quilt down there that I love and all it needs is binding. Can I have it?” She doesn’t beat around the bush and I love that! I said “I don’t know . . go get it and bring it to me so I can see it.” And, it was Making Ends Meet. She said the border looks more blue to her and it really is more blue than purple. I told her I would get the binding on and give it to her before we leave.
After the quilt for the magazine was finished, I did the binding on Nicole’s quilt and when they were here for dinner Sunday night, I gave it to her and she’s really happy with it.
Isn’t she just the cutest girl? And now she has the cutest quilt! 🙂 I’m going to miss her about as much as I’m going to miss Chad. Speck is a snippy little biting dachshund and he loves Nicole. The other day she came by here when we weren’t home and she said he was so happy to see her .. he kept jumping on her and then trying to give her kisses. If she and I are both sitting, he’ll often go sit on her lap instead of mine. He’s not a friendly dog at all so that’s been so surprising. She’s just a great girl and even Speck recognizes it!
And do you see how tall my grass is? I kept it cut so nice and neat while Vince was gone. Vince is home and now the yard is his job! We have to cut it right before we leave and since the mower needs to be drained of gas and oil, he’s putting off cutting it til Tuesday or Wednesday so he only has to do it one more time and then he can drain all the fluids from the mower.
