Ooh, it is nice to have crafty bloggy friends! Generally speaking, I’m known as the crafty one among my friends, and am the giver of handmade gifts. However, I generally don’t receive many handmade gifts. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised to get a fun package for little Kit in the mail last week from Ronit (she has been a friend for a while, and we met in real life last November when she was in LA for a visit before going to New Zealand…lucky girl!).
Inside was a lovely little quilt! Ronit’s quilting style is much more improvisational than mine, but the paper pieced star (which is done excellently, BTW) is a nod to my love of more traditional blocks. Not to mention, a nice acknowledgement that the quilt is more for me to enjoy at this point.
You can read more from Ronit over at her blog. You should definitely go check out the photos of the super cute quilt back. I wasn’t able to get a photo of the back with the little missy this morning, because shortly after I took the photo below, she lost head control and bonked her little face into the quilt and had a mini-meltdown. Thankfully, she recovered nicely after I hustled her back inside and distracted her with Jacques the Peacock. The Mother of the Year prize does not belong to me!
Thanks again Ronit for a beautiful little quilt!
PS – I was SO that crazy chick in the neighborhood today, taking these photos by the HOA pool, sprawled on the sidewalk with my rear in the air. Hopefully someone had a good laugh at my expense.
