    Highest praise ever

    Got this email from our son this morning. Eli is 5.

    "Eli had high praise for Nana tonight at bedtime. He didn't want his soft minky blanket, " Nana's cover is my favorite. It's so comfy and is like getting a huge Nana hug all night. It's the best Dad".

    It made me tear up. You certainly can't expect higher praise from anyone. It made me feel warm and fuzzy too! Here is a picture of the quilt he is referring to, made in 2016

    Little does he know that the next quilt he will get, probably for Christmas 2020, is a two sided quilt of the Dr. Who tartis and the Exterminator LOL

    Wonderful words to hear from a family member and they are sincere and loving words. I guess "innocent words out of the mouths of babes" is a true saying. Congratulations and an adorable quilt. That statement is worth all the work that goes into making a quilt.

    That is so sweet, your a lucky grandma! I was just wondering who or what is the exterminator? I know the Tardis but not the other.

    I would be floating on cloud 9 if my grandson said that about me. You must be doing something very right if he feels that way about you. I live for these kind of moments with my grandson. He is also 5. I'm guessing you're a wonderful grandma. Not to mention that the quilt you made him is adorable.

    Better than first place in a show! Make sure "Dad" takes a picture of him with it.

    Why is it the boys fuss over our quilts the most? The girls love them too, but my grandson is so sentimental over "his" quilts from Meme. Your quilt is adorable. Thanks for sharing, and, yes, get a photo of him snuggling under this dear quilt. BTW, your boarder is spectacular !

    That is high praise, indeed. Lucky Nana, lucky grandson!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
