I have never been able to surprise my parents at Christmas. I always had to have Mama give me hints of what to get them and Daddy always guessed what was in the box before he even started to remove the paper. But this year I finally did it. I made them a quilted wall hanging of their house that they have lived in for the past 40 or so years. It was my first attempt at designing anything original and I am very pleased with the way it turned out. They hung it up on Christmas Day.
