The pocket on the apron came in handy. After one of our meals in the dining area at the retreat center, we left a tip for her on our table so she picked it up and stuffed it in there!
I bought her some really pretty batiks in her favorite fall colors and folded them into what I hoped would pass for a bouquet. Then I received my own surprise birthday bouquet from my son and his family. Cat didn't know I was her "Secret Quilter" yet, but I asked her to pose with me for a picture since our bouquets were almost identical. (I'm right...... Right??)
The person who had my name did a fantastic job of surprising me. It seemed like every time I left my sewing machine, I came back to find a gift there. And there was no lack of chocolate! I never did figure out who it was. Rilla is the BEST "Secret Quilter" EVER!!!!
Although, now that I think about it, I should have known it was Rilla when I received the very first gift........
