A few years ago, I gave my nieces and nephew each something I called a "Quilt Kit". I cut out some squares, included a piece of cotton batting, a spool of thread and some needles.
Yesterday I got an email form my youngest niece, Maddie:
"Hi Aunt Diana
Thanks for the quilt kit. I like it so much that yesterday I started working on it at 6pm and now it is 724 pm sunday and I finished 9 patches already! Im sending 2 picures. 1 of me and the quilt so far and 1 of me on the 1st day of 3rd grade. Love maddie"
I love being an aunt!
