|Gone golfing... back maybe!|
|My dad and ME (taken a few years ago)|
|Nice day at the golf course...|

So the waiting is finally over and here it is. I've named this quilt "Gone golfing... back maybe"
Initially when I bought the checkered print fabric I thought of making a quilt that leaned towards a Scottish theme, since golf originates from Scotland. So I made four different 'traditional' quilt blocks.
But then I thought of being a bit more creative, and change the whole look...
I added a golf bag with a few golf clubs.
A turtle keeping guard at lost ball, LOL
A club house, which I think looks a bit more like a barn...
A 'green' with a red flag...
... and then I added my 'dad'... standing ready to tee off having another great golfing day!
I am the youngest of four children, and I suppose being the 'baby' in the house my dad is always very protective over me, but it has to be said that he has treated all of us fair, with respect and most certainly with adoring love and care like only a father can. I treasure every moment I get to spend with them, they live so far and we don't get to see them that often. Giving him this for his birthday was really special,...
