A Birthday Surprise for Someone Special

No, it isn't my birthday, won't be for a couple of months, and I'm not hurrying it along.  But, I have a wonderful aunt, who is having a birthday very soon, October 4th, in fact.  She never wants anything for her birthday, but she is always generous with us, when ours comes along.  This year, she turns 86, and when I talked to her today, she said she would love to have a Dogwood Quilt pattern, that she can't find hers, and that is a quilt she would love to have.
I told her I had a dogwood quilt, and that I'd draw off the pattern, and send it to her.  After messing with it for awhile, I decided no, I'm not sending a pattern, I'm packing that quilt up and shipping it to her as a birthday gift. It's the color she wants and everything, and the quilt means nothing to me at all, it is just a quilt.  And I don't care for the colors or the design, so it will clear out a space in my cabinet for a new quilt, someday.  So, I called the post office, they are delivering me a box tomorrow, so that I can pack it up, and get it to her, by her birthday.  Happy 86th Birthday to the Sweetest aunt anyone could ever have....

You are such a good person, Jettie! I know why she is so good to you and loves YOU so much! What a fun surprise for her! 86 deserves something special, I'd say! xo Diana

You are so sweet! That aunt sure is lucky to have you in the family. My youngest son has a birthday on the 3rd. Love early October birthdays.
You are going to have to let us know her reaction to her gift- I wonder if 86 year olds still scream in delight?
Hugs- Tete

What a lovely quilt. You are so generous to send it to your aunt. I'm sure she will be so happy to have it.
