Wild Thing and His Birthday Quilt

Today is wild thing's 9th birthday, but since we have a baseball tournament all weekend, we ended up celebrating his birthday a few days ago.  He logically presented his case that he deserved his birthday gift then, and since I'm not the greatest secret-keeper, of course I let him have it!

He thought the entire idea of posing with the quilt outside was hilarious and could not stop giggling.


He was totally surprised, since he usually sees all of my projects in process.  When I told him how I managed to make Sailing at Sunset in one day without his knowledge, he just cracked up laughing that I was able to pull one over on him.  That kid just melts my heart.

There are so many joys of being a mom, but one of the greatest has to be seeing something that I created bring him so much happiness.  He loves the quilt for what it is, and he loves it because I made it.  Since he's had the quilt, if we have been at home, the quilt has been by his side or wrapped around him.  I'm so glad that even at nine years old, he's still not too old to love snuggling up in one of Mommy's quilts- and I know that I will never tire of seeing it either.

  5. So cute!! It's nice when the littles are appreciative of things that are handmade, as opposed to store bought! I hope my guys still love getting quilts when they're nine! Though if i keep making them for every birthday they may be sick of them by then, lol!
