Valentine's Surprise




My Darling Husband came home from work tonight with this awesome old quilt and ladder. What a surprise and what a thoughtful gift. We had looked in this shop in Woodland when we were getting ready to buy our log bed. I wanted that quilt so bad but didn't have the extra cash to buy it at the time. I couldn't quit thinking about it and I knew when I had a chance to back there, it would be gone. So when I saw it, the tears flowed. This is one of the most special gifts he has given me in over 33 years of marriage.

You can feel the love in this tattered beauty. I don't understand why anyone would get rid of an old quilt. I has been loved by many. It will continue to be loved by me. It now has a new home in my bedroom and my Gramma Maple's quilt will be at home with it.

Very unusual pattern - I don't think I have seen it before. And the ladder makes a neat display rack. Very nice presents indeed!

Cheers!
