Nevermind that Angela has a little girl in the beginning stages of walking/getting into everything ;), preparing for a move across the country, and is committed to several swaps and bees...because somehow in the midst of all that, she found time to design and sew the most gorgeous and unique housewarming present I'll probably ever receive. I'll let the photos do the talking, because words won't do it justice..
And of course, while I was in the backyard after work taking these photos, Whiskers (who I let out to run around after being in a kennel all day), naturally decided to take a little breather right in the center of my quilt. What a diva. Not only does he have his own yard and soccer ball, but he has to claim a "timeout" quilt for himself.
And in case you were wondering, that tree you see behind Whiskers is a MASSIVE oak. It's easily 40 feet tall. Here's another picture from a little further away with Whiskers in there for scale. He enjoys eating all the acorns on the ground...not entirely sure if that's good for him...making a mental note to google that later...
I'm so glad we were able to plan another retreat before she moves, because we're really going to miss her. I need to stop typing about it now, because I'm starting to get a little misty... *sigh*
