Steve and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary last Sunday and serendipitously
an unexpected gift arrived in the mail on Monday.
I had forgotten that a dear friend we met 45 years ago was making us a quilt.
I was cleaning up the "garden room" when the package arrived and I laid the quilt on the table photograph it.
I am in love with all the different "beachy" fabrics Carol chose for the quilt
and the backing is wonderful.
When passing through Ventura, Carol and Mike have stopped by a couple of times this past year
so she knows my color palette and did a great job on the colors of the quilt.
The quilt looks so pretty in the garden, but it will never be used outside where it might fade.
No, the quilt gets a prime spot on the sofa so I can see it
and smile every time I look at it.
I wasn't planning any changes in the living room this week,
but thanks to an old friend our living room is looking fresh for spring.
