She’s been working on a reproduction Civil War quilt for me in her spare time using a late 19th century Singer treadle sewing machine…. and apparently she’s finished it!

She sent it back with my folks (who were out visiting her and my grandparents in CO for New Years) and requested a picture of my face when I saw the quilt. So today my folks arrived back in town (SNA – OC’s Airport is near my work) and they made a point of stopping by before they drove home in order to surprise me with the quilt.
And let me tell you, it was indeed a surprise! (And a pleasant surprise at that!)
Its gorgeous!! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. (And my dad not only acceded to Sue’s request for a photo, he took it one step further – he *recorded my reaction* using his smart-phone. Err, o_O Thanks Dad?! ;-)
