The tale of the red blanket - part III - "Happy Reunion - Diamonds for Blankets"

After many years of the red-themed gift exchange, and my poor sister typing "red blanket" as her computer password on a daily basis...my husband asked me to marry him.

It was a sweet and romantic proposal, and both families could not have been happier.

My sister, as a special engagement gift, and a testimony of her love to her new brother-in-law, returned the red blanket to him.

It was not quite the same relief experienced by hostages released after many years of imprisonment, but I will have to say that it was a very sweet reunion.

Ok, so in other news, I just got my embroidery pattern "Quilting Bee" from Hilary at Wee Wonderfuls. No idea when I'll whip this up, but it's adorable, and so quilty!!

Great story! I was hoping for a happy ending and it turned out to be sweet also.

I sit with this red blanket on the back of my computer chair at home every day, so that no one thinks it goes unappreciated.

And to top it all off, I got a little sister out of the bargain!

How bad is it that Maria (of Pinwheels) knows me by sight?

(I bought 2 kits & several fat quarters/half-yards...)
