Amazing Friends

So last month, my Verry amazing friend Sherry sent us, special delivery from Ireland, two handmade quilts for the girls. They are adorable! Sherry, you've no idea how much this means to me. I am hugely sentimental and handmade gifts are rare these days. I was so excited to open the package, and you did not disappoint.

I put Katherine's quilt on the floor to show her and she immediately laid down on it and started singing a lullaby. So glad I caught that moment! The quilt is absolutely adorable, with all things girly: castles, princesses and flowers. And little did Sherry know, this was a perfect fit for Katherine, who is such a girly girl (WHERE that came from I do not know.). But she loves her baby dolls and all things princess-like, so the quilt was adored as you can see below. While she doesn't yet understand how truly special it is, I will make sure she does as she gets older. And I was so inspired by it, that I plan to decorate Katherine's room around the color scheme.

And of course only another mother would go the extra mile and make a matching doll quilt for big sister. So thoughtful! Natalie already has her own Sherry creation, which is hanging on her bedroom wall, so to receive another is truly a special treat.

So Sherry, thank you so verry much!! These will be cherished and handed down to generations of future Dixon Chicks, of that I am sure.
