Quilt Topper

I wasn't happy with the white
bedspread in the Grandchildren's Room,
but I didn't really know what I wanted.
I'm so glad I waited.
Yesterday, I found a quilt top
at a local Antique Store.
It looks perfect on the bed
and I'm sure will provide hours of
alphabet "lessons".

I can just picture a sweet little
lady somewhere lovingly
embroidering each picture's letter.

A is for Apple

B is for Ball

C is for Camel
(not sure why some of the pictures
came out sideways)

D is for Duck

E is for Elephant

F is for Frog

G is for Goose

H is for Hen

I is for Ice Cream

J is for Jack in the Box

K is for Kangaroo

L is for Lamb

M is for Mouse

N is for Needle

O is for Owl

P is for Penguin

Q is for Quill

R is for Rabbit

S is for Squirrel

T is for Turkey

U is for Umbrella

V is for Vegetables

W is for Windmill

and then there are X, Y, and Z.

I find it interesting the objects they connected
with each letter years ago.
N would never stand for Needle today.
Ninja, Narwhal, Neptune, etc. maybe.

Which letter's picture is your favorite?
I think I like O is for Owl
and R is for Rabbit the best.

It is such a neat feeling to find the perfect "something." Do you go to the doorway and just look many times in a day?~donna p
