It is not every day a quilt finds its way from North Pole, Alaska but this one did. Of course it started its excursion last September (2012) but a newborn took precedence. It finally started its overland journey in early April & just arrived safe and sound.
I will also be attaching the binding for Misty to finish.
This quilt will belong to Misty's daughter, 11 year old Honor, who is watching the BLOG today.
Sep 09, 2012: Misty found my website and contacted me. I responded but that was the end of our conversation until recently.
Apr 10 or so: Quilt was shipped with expected 2-3 weeks to get here.
Apr 30: Still heard nothing back after several emails (spam monster got 'em). Fortunately, I had a phone number so I left a message over the weekend. Got a call yesterday & now the email will flow. We hope.
May 01: The quilt and backing arrived safe and sound even without plastic wrap. Whew!
May 02: I will be making & attaching the binding from some black fabric I just got in. Very glad I ordered extra. It is nice when it just so happens happens.
