My one bright spot? The quilt was finished
I handed it off and was glad to have that project no longer looming over my head but the very best part? She LOVED it! Not just "oh wow I love it" but "OMG, OMG OMG it's the best thing ever and I will never sleep in a bed without it and I love the colors and the pattern and it's the best thing EVER!!!" - that kind of love it :o) Which makes every hour I spent on it worth it! And if you ask me why I make these quilts for people without ever getting even close to being adequately compensated for them - that's why!
