The kindness of bloggers

I should have done this post days ago but I've been very lazy. It's high time I tell you all about the kindness and generosity of one particular blogger.
Through my meet my other friends Monday posts you may have met Katie from Westie Julep. Katie is mom to Julep and Derby, two adorable westies. Aside from that Katie is always sewing up a storm. She makes American girl doll clothes and quilts many of which go to Westie Rescue.

Imagine my surprise and delight when Katie said that she was making a quilt special for me. I don't think there are enough words to describe just how much I appreciated her gesture. Bloggers truly are the best people I've never met.

Last week when I got home from work I found the package on the door step and couldn't wait to open it up.
Katie had asked me if I had certain colors or style that I preferred and I told her that I'm pretty eclectic so anything was good.
This quilt just makes me happy every time I look at it. 


Of course Duke wanted to show it off too.

See mom, I'm not touching it but I sure would like to try it out. I promise my paws are clean.


I think Duke and I will spend many happy moments with this quilt. Thank you so much Katie. I absolutely love it.

  1. It is beautiful!!! Katie is an amazing person! She made beautiful doll clothes for Anne Maire's American Girl Doll, they are beautifully made and even lined and sequined. She mailed them in a gorgeous box. And she asked for nothing in return!!! And I am a complete stranger to her, she does not even follow me! She must spend her time doing good things for other people, she is so special and wonderful!!

  2. Ah, one of the rewards of blogging is finding great friends! You are blessed to have met Katie.

    The quilt is so beautiful. But what makes it even more special is that Katie made it herself. Such a sweet gesture.

  5. Oh my gosh....what a wonderful and generous gift!!! That is definitely a keeper and I KNOW you two will enjoy this on the cooler autumn and winter days.

    It's beautiful. I will have to go pay a visit to Katie to let her know, even if the quilt is YOURS, her generosity is worthy of giving her a happy face.
