I got some pictures last night when I finished tacking down the binding. I wanted to get some this morning too, but it was too gloomy outside. 

I really really wanted to get this to my friend before her surgery. I couldn't get it out of my head. It didn't work out to get over there last night (which is fine because it wasn't done). But I couldn't drive by this morning (had to go back to work to get my purse) without stopping. I caught her with her hair in a towel and no makeup, and simply handed it off and gave a hug and left. But I feel so much better - like there is a weight off my chest. It was folded up, so there wasn't much to see of it, but she was happy, said it made her teary. Her porch had wicker furniture and I saw a rose tea set on her living room coffee table. This was certainly the right material choice, and I am sure she will love it. (The porch would have been a great place to take a staged picture. Oh well)

It will probably be a couple months again before I make another quilt. I wish that wasn't the case, but at the same time I am happy about it. We are going to be moving into a 2-bedroom apartment, so I will have room to quilt. Currently I can't reach my sewing machine, I filled the dining room space with empty boxes.
