A Huge Surprise

For the first part of this week, my son and I went up north.  So this post was going to show you some of the blocks I cut, some of the colorful scraps, and the cloth I bought.



BUT, then I got home.  My husband said, "I have something to show you in the basement."  And I found this...




CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?  I still can't.  He even put the quilting frame together and that took him all three nights while we were gone.  And here I thought he was just relaxing.  I had been thinking how awesome it would be to have a quilter, but was having a hard time justifying the money and the space.  But since it was a gift I can just enjoy it!!  The only sad thing is that I only have one quilt top that needs quilting right now.

I've been smiling at my husband all evening.  And wishing that I didn't have to be an adult for the next few days so I could just quilt.  But the baby needs to be taken care of, so quilting/piecing can't be my first priority.  It can be my second though. And they might be able to overlap a little bit. :)
