We were recently invited to a graduation party. It was the same day as Kalissa’s bridal shower and we didn’t get a chance to make it but we did send a gift…a quilt.
Kelli had some babysitting for her when she was growing up and she spent some time at my childcare in the summer. She’s the sweetest gal. She’s one of those gals that still talks to me and doesn’t seem to mind. She’s just two years younger than our Kalissa so the two of them enjoy getting together and catching up.
It was an easy decision to give her a quilt. I asked Kelli if we could give her our Meet in the Middle quilt. (Find the free pattern here) Kelli laughed and said she had the exact same idea. So we gifted it to her for graduation.
Early this week I got the cutest email from her. It said thanks for the quilt and said that she knows that I always get my dog to pose on all of my quilts and she wanted to try to do the same with her dog.
Here’s the picture of the quilt and her dog. I LOVE IT! Kelli loved it too. Kelli commented that it was the cutest thank you we’ve ever gotten. I totally agree.
What makes me really excited is that so far, the gal is planning to stay in our area and going to the community college. So many times our kids move away from the area to the city with fancier jobs. I know her plans may change and that life might take her down a different road but I am sure excited that she’s even thinking about staying around. Our town needs more people just like her!
