On returning from my regular post-school drop-off dog walk My Assistant and I found Cappy had placed the post inside the house for me. There was a parcel with my name on it. A HUGE soft and squooshy parcel.
So we took it out into the sunshine to open it.
Oooo look! There are munkehs poking out. Looking at the background I think they are planning on helping Cappy and Barry with the build.
Turns out to be from Missus Katy Monkey. And you know what that means right?
My Birthday Quilt has come home.
It is way bigger than I had anticipated (my bed is enormous so the scale is all whacked) and way, way more fabulous. All of that gorgeousness and generosity of my lovely bloggy and real world friends and family combined together in a piece of practical art.
Wanna have a look at the back? Katy told me the backing was a gift and it would be a reminder of her (as if I would be likely to forget her!). It has both blue and GINGER monkeys!
After taking the pictures of the quilt I took it back downstairs, then went outside with Cappy and Barry's coffees. This is what I found when I came back in.
What?? I prefer the munkehs.
