Sienna and her Flannel Rag Quilt

Sienna's birthday was yesterday and I gave her some presents in the morning but saved the Rag Quilt that I had made for her until the afternoon.  James was wanting me to give the Quilt to her in the morning because he was excited to see her reaction as he knew she would love it.  There's enough going on in the morning with opening presents, getting ready for school, making birthday pancakes for breakfast that I didn't want it to be a two minute open and put down to enjoy other things because I wanted it to be special.

She knew she was getting the "special sewing project" after school and when we got home James wanted to be the one to hand over the Quilt.  I actually wanted to give it to Sienna myself given that I had made it, however James was so excited and wanted to be the one to give it to her that I figured I could take photos of her reaction and we would all be happy.  So here's some pictures of Sienna getting her present which she had to close her eyes while James brought it out because it wasn't wrapped but I did tie a ribbon around it and put a card on top.  James is wishing he had one himself as he loves how cosy and warm it is so I'll be on the hunt for some "flannel fabric for boys" to so in the next couple of months.  Here's Sienna's beautiful reaction to the hand made Rag Quilt which is adorable to say the least.  I got such enjoyment out of making this for her and I loved that I was able to capture her excitement as well.
