I made a baby quilt for a dear friend's daughter's "surprise" bundle of joy. When I took it over to my friend's, she said she was going over to her DD's to stay overnight & why didn't I follow her over (about a 30 min. drive) and give the gift myself. Checked with DH, to be sure it wouldn't be a problem, and said sure. Put the quilt back into the gift bag with other items & drove off. When we got there, her daughter was so overcome with joy & appreciation for the quilt and the baby afghan I had crocheted. She just kept saying, "You made this??? For me??? That is so flipping awesome!!! I can't believe you did that for me! That is just awesome!" Made me so happy that I wrestled with it & finally got it done.
I know so many times I've seen posts from folks who have made beautiful quilt gifts that were severely underappreciated or even put down, I just had to share that remarkable reaction. It made me feel so glad that the effort I made was honored.
Have a blessed day, everyone!
