Lately it feels like I'm always packing up my quilts to send across the country as gifts - which I love - but I don't get to be there when they are opened. There is something about seeing your hard work find its home that is so satisfying.
When I finished the Eat, Play, Sleep, Repeat quilt for M.E. I actually got to take it down the street to her baby shower and watch her open it.
It truly does feel better to give then to receive.
