A big time thanks to my co-writers
I get by with a little help from my friends. I get quilts from them too, as it happens.
I’ve gotten a slew of amazing and fantastic presents from friends and well-wishers upon the birth of my babe. Hopefully I’ve thanked you all (if I haven’t, I’m a putz). One gift that I have received that makes for a good blog post is this little number here:
No, not the baby. That one I came up with myself. No, my co-authors Jules Danielson of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast and Peter Sieruta of Collecting Children’s Books decided to get my offspring something particularly special. So they pooled their resources and contacted Robin Smith. Reviewer, teacher, committee member, amazing gift giver (thank you for the adorable sweater and hat!!!), you may add “quilter” to that list as well. As it happens, Robin made this marvelous Alice in Wonderland quilt for the Baby Bird. As you can see, she’s taken to it.
And check out that detail!
Fantastic stuff. Big time thanks to Jules, Peter, and Robin. My wee oiseaux could ask for nothing better.
