I got my pink yarn and got to tacking my quilt this morning . Now it’s all done, just have to mail it to its new owner Christina. Actually, I’ll be sending it to Christina’s Cousin Maike who lives in Illinois. I got to do business with Maike, when Christine told me about her jewelry business Maike’s Marvels. I bought a heart necklace for Jon and a great pair of wire earrings from her ETSY shop. So I’ll ship the quilt to Maike and she’ll send out a box of stuff at sometime to her cousin in Germany, and my quilt will be in that box.
Christina asked me if I could put a thin backing on the quilt, because she plans on packing it in her suitcase and taking it with her when she travels. She said it will give an instant “feeling home” to whatever hotel she’s staying in. It’s a really nice idea to have a traveling quilt to bring comfort where ever you go. Not something I ever thought of, but I can picture it, that impersonal, ubiquitous hotel room, with Hope Blooming spread out on the bed or draped over the chair. Suddenly it’s just a bit more cozy.
