    Thank you all, such kind words. Quilting the cat footprints into the quilt was a bit of a pain but it fitted with the story. Chicken or the egg.........which comes first the story or the quilt? Truth is the story comes as I sew the quilt and sometimes I do something to fit the story (hence the footprints) and sometimes I put something into the story that the fabric suggests.

    How wonderful ! Years ago, when my oldest son moved out of state, I made "talking" books with Grandma's (my) voice. The kids loved those books....

    What a fabulous story to pass down to a child and a quilt to go with it! So good to hear from you again.

    Oh Daisy, Oh Daisy - you never fail to charm me. You do know you are truly loved here, right?

    Would you see if you can remember to let us know when Little Smith arrives - and do let Stewart know I still have a crush on him.
