I've been pretty much offline these last few days involved with a lot of family activities and totally missed Gene's post about the children's reactions to the quilts when he delivered them this past Saturday. Gene was kind enough to e-mail me Sunday to let me know how 'the note' was received and the super special young lady who chose my quilt. Tears filled my eyes as I told my husband I'd just received the best Christmas present.... nothing else could mean so much..... to me.
Reading Gene's blog post this morning made me wonder if maybe I needed to post what I had included in the note as others might be interested also. Remember, I didn't know if a boy or a girl would choose my quilt.
My simple homemade notecard matched perfectly with the 'blue' theme.
. LOVE .
My thought process here was that a child might not want some stranger's name on their quilt - particularly if it was a boy?? I don't know, just sharing my thoughts, so I deliberately did not include my name on the quilt, but made sure the year and state was noted..... and of course 'love'.
