I love my bubble of ladies

A good online friend of mine is a quilter. I've enjoyed watching her create the most beautiful quilts the last couple of years, while getting to know her, and seeing her boys grow up on Facebook and Instagram. 

The past several months, she's been working on this gorgeous Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt, I assumed, for one of her boys, or to sell. She would tag me in her posts about it because, everyone knows how obsessed I am with The Very Hungry Caterpillar. 

When she was done making it, she took one final picture, and tagged me in it, so I could see it. I offered to sell my organs to buy it from her, but she said it wasn't for sale, or she would give me a good price. 

Fast-forward to yesterday. I get a message from said friend. She asked if I had checked my mail, and had put the same emojis I was using on her pictures. I think my heart literally stopped. She said she couldn't take it anymore, and I had to go check my mail. I ran....ok, waddled really fast, to the mail boxes. Nothing. Was this some sort or cruel joke? I checked the front and back door. Nothing. Gah! Clearly, the mail carrier doesn't get it. 

I walked back inside and told M. (friend) the mail hadn't come yet. She was displeased. I had to put Sweet Pea down for a nap. Then the mail came!!

Mister went and got it. And look what was inside!!!!!!

I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

 ^^^ This is the backing ^^^ 

We have it on the couch so we all can enjoy it.
Today, Sweet Pea wouldn't settle down during nap time. She climbed off my nap, and went over to the big couch. She pulled down her quilt, and brought it over to me. She then climbed back into my lap and fell asleep. I'm just glad we have air conditioning now!

Sweet Pea loves her new quilt, and so do I. I can't wait for it to get cold, so I can cuddle under it with Sweet Pea, and get warm. 

I also won a giveaway from another friend that I made on Instagram, and have since become friends on Facebook. She also made Sweet Pea a special surprise! We're very blessed in our bubble of friends. She has an adorable Etsy Shop, totally check it out!
