Unfortunately, my friend and her family moved nearly 3,000 miles away when the girls were in pre-school. My husband and I visited them once out there, and they visited us once back here. We didn't stay in close contact, but we knew where to find each other.
A few years ago, this family moved again: now they live less than 200 miles away! Since I travel for my job, I stop and see them whenever I'm in their area. It's been incredibly sweet to re-kindle our friendship.
Since my daughter graduated from high school last year, it didn't surprise me much that my friend's daughter graduated the same year. Even so, I didn't get her quilt finished in time.
Only one year late, I bring you Emily's quilt:
She likes orange. Can you tell?
