I Just Wonder....

I just wonder................
Why me?
I wonder how I was lucky enough to win this at my favorite Quilt store?
I LOVE it!

I just wonder..........
if Granny was thinking of Valentines day when she made this quilt.
See the little red hearts? I need to ask her.
This picture shows her measuring the quilt top as it lies on her bed.
Then she trims the batting and the backing to fit while it is there.

I just wonder..............
What she thought when I told her that this quilt was already sold to Bobbi! Granny had just finished this quilt the day before. I sent Bobbi a picture of this quilt and she fell in love with it.

I just wonder........
What Granny thinks when I bring her the money for the quilts and then I pack them in the boxes and show her where they are going.

** I have had many questions about people cutting Granny some fabric. One didn't have an email so I could respond so I will do it here.
What a blessing this is for Granny.
Granny's quilts are for a full size bed. She likes her squares to be approx. 4 1/2 inches. She measures her rows 20-22 across and around 24 long.
If you are blessing Granny by doing this just send me an email and I will give you the address to send it to.

I don't have the Post office Box anymore.**


I just wonder........
If we are really going to get more snow like they are saying.
Are you sending more snow Diane??

Bring it on! I LOVE Snow!

I just wonder..............
When I gave my sweet hubby this for Valentines day if he knew what it was? LOL
It is chocolate candy that I made just for him and it is suppose to look like it is in the shape of a heart. The picture doesn't do it justice. It is really delicious!
He seems to like how it taste!

I just wonder................Why my sweet honey & I have switched roles? I used to always get him a card and he always gave me something else. I always wanted a card. Now I never buy a card and I give him something more practical. He always buys a card now. Maybe that is an age thing. He will not let me open it until in the morning.

I just wonder.......................about a lot, but I do know one thing. I am so blessed to have all my Valentines in my life.

  • My sweet hubby
  • My 4 children
  • My 4 grandchildren
  • My 3 Son in laws
  • My Mom & Dad
  • My Mother in law
  • My Sisters
  • My Granny

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU ALL!

I wish Heidi and I were closer that we could meet you all in person. I would love nothing more than to spend a day with Granny. cutting fabric for her and learning a few tricks along the way.

I just wonder.....if my sweet friend Valerie knows how loved she is by so many?

I am so proud you won that wall hanging, just in time for Valentine's day! Great post, little daughter!, as usual! Happy Valentine's day, and what a special day it is, your Grandmother's birthday! We miss her terribly.

Diane said...

Yes Val, I might be sending you some more on monday! We are suppose to get between 5-7 inches depending on who you listen to.

What a beautiful post again....and grannys new quilt is beautiful.
I think our rolls in married life is dictated to 'years of being married' and how we go about doing for each other....for some reason it turned out a reversal for you and your hubby and that's a really nice thing - we find our rolls changing here as well and don't seem to question it either...it just seems to work for us as I see it does for you too.

Have a great day!
Karen

Next time Granny makes a good old scrappy style quilt such as shown - consider it sold. If you have a waiting list - put me on it!
