    Here's a quick preview of my BD present

    I've mentioned a couple times that DH was building a quilting frame for me. It was brought into the living room this afternoon while I was playing Nana Days with three DGDs. I still need to prepare the cloth apron (leaders) and attach them, but hopefully you can see in these two pictures that he does some absolutely STUPENDOUS work. I was completely choked up and honestly think this is the most amazing thing he has done for me . . . other than marrying me and making me a Mother.

    Pictures to follow when I've got the leaders in place and my quilt on.

      Sandy, I have just picked myself up from a very deep SWOON. What a terrific job he did. It is gorgeous! You have a marvelous man indeed. What a special gift for a special gal!

      I've decided to give him his own very special graphic I found lying around.
