I wasn't disappointed. These foxes are quick and easy to make and there's something so charming about their faces. Also I bought a house about six months ago and a charming fox lives nearby; I see him trot through the yard every few weeks or so. So this feels extra special.
Last weekend I entered a new era - I attended my first peer baby shower. As much as I wanted to keep this quilt, I knew the expecting mom would love it too, and would actually get some use out of it.
And oh my goodness did I get a good reception. Is there anything better than a friend opening a gift you've made, looking down at it, her eyes widening, looking up at you and exclaiming "oh my gosh Katie, did you make this!?"
That's why we quilters do it, I think. That's why I do.
