My Mom Is the Bestest!
Because she sends me packages that contain...
An old school how-to-knit comic book and a collection of surprisingly timeless sweater patterns from Red Heart from 1968.
But the best part of the package?
Well, first a little back story.
Back when I was a young Bezzie, and not EVEN a Bezzie--I was just a girl who had only met Mr. Bez...I turned 18. And sometime around then, Everyone's Favorite Blog Mom made me a pig quilt.
Oh how I loved my quilt. I brought it to college, I slept under it as a newly-wed-Bezzie, I conceived a Chunky and a Moochie under (or around) that quilt, I brought that quilt with me to four states, and a certain cat (Springs!) likes to bite whatever blanket I'm sleeping under and hump me in the middle of the night.
You can tell where this is going; the quilt I got when I was 18 was starting to show it's age.
Doesn't look too bad from a distance huh?
Not so much up close.
Poor thing. The back was even worse.
That flappy of fabric was driving me bonkers in bed!
I approached my Favorite Mommy with a request: Could she make me a new quilt?
Wow, it was like pulling hen's teeth -- NOT! She was all over it!
Maybe 2 months after I asked her if she'd make me one, look what came in the mail today!!
I LOVE IT!!!
The best part? Oh that would be the little kitty cat patch in the middle...
I guess that's so Springs knows where to sleep on/hump me at night!
You can't tell, but the back is pieced with three different lady bug prints.
This matches the...
Ladybug pillow case she made me!!!!
See? I told you she was the Bestest!
