Brooke and her quilt

First thing this morning when Brooke woke up........and woke me up, she told me that she wanted to finish her quilt and make it into a real quilt.  Aunt Elaine still needed a little time to wake up so Brooke finished reading her book that we got from the library yesterday, and of course was chattering in between reading!  After bowls of Captain Crunch, I talked her into adding more rows to her quilt.  She only had it about 12" x 12" to begin with.  So the first thing she did was to add some more rows to it.  She was so pleased and proud of herself when she had it all done.  She is going to use it as a little blanket to hold on to.  She does that with the baby quilt I made her.  Kind of like a little Linus blanket I said.  She laughed and said yes.  She also made another card this morning.  She kind of had mixed feelings about whether or not she wanted to go home, but she told me that her family was missing her and that she had better go home.  But she said she had a really great time and had a lot of fun.  The house is quiet now without her chatter.  But Diane was over this afternoon, and we exchanged our Christmas presents, and Jenna just called, so it really hasn't been that quiet yet!  I am sure that Taffy is going to miss her as Taffy was eating up all the extra attention she was getting, and Molly will miss her to in her own way as she likes to watch people even though she is not so keen about them touching her.  I have been working on stitching towels, and I have stitched 4 so far this week, and I am almost done with a fifth one.  I have a new Chicken one to show you for tomorrow.  It sure turned out cute!  Until tomorrow....Elaine

  1. What a cute little girl....don't tell her I said "little". She is a real sweetie and I love the things she says to you! Also like her little quilt...very nice. How wonderful that she has an Aunt Elaine. You are one special person to everyone! Everyone should have an aunt like you and/or a friend like you! I know I am happy to know you!
