That's a very cute quilt.
Smile as you say "Better late than never" and I'm sure your sister will enjoy the story about the delay.
Lovely! She will be happy no matter the timing.
Cute! I bet she'll like it!
Bet she loves it. Some quilts just can't be rushed.
great job! doesn't it feel good to get a long term project done.
While home for Thanksgiving DD mentioned she had lost her sewing kit that had her needles & thread. I got to thinking, I could put together a nice "real" sewing kit for her for Christmas. I decided to copy a little makeup case I had bought years ago, but using some llama fabric. The fabric I found at HL not only had llamas, it has cats, ice cream & donuts (a few of her favorite things....). I put in the normal sewing kit stuff, plus some non-sewer aids (hem mending tape, temporary double stick fabric tape). I included the nifty needle threader we got at the AZ retreat several years ago as it works so well but I rarely use it. Also made a little llama pincushion. I'm working on the embroidery feature of my old Janome to make a "made by Mom" label for it. I made a mistake on the measuring - forgot to include the width of the zipper when I made the pattern, so it's not as deep as I had wanted. But it still works. I've got pins, needles, thimble, good fabric scissors, thread, safety pins, good seam ripper, measuring tape. Anyone had other ideas of things to include?
Love the idea! You could throw in a Band-Aid for good measure :)
