A Christmas Gift

Christmas Day I couldn't wait to deliver my grandson's gift to him and stood with my camera in hand to take a photo of him opening it.  
As soon as he unrolled the rug I could see a huge grin on his face which stayed there while he placed the rug on the back of the sofa for viewing.   As I'm taking this picture he tells me, "I really like it Grandma".  And I knew he would because he admired his dad's rug last Christmas....the Porter's Man Cave rug.
Immediately Zach took me to his bedroom and showed where he wanted it hung....over his desk.  On the top shelf of his desk is a signed Orioles baseball cap, a school award and some floating darts given to him by his cousin.
As I looked at his room saw some old valances I'd made eons ago and told him they needed to be replaced.  I asked what he wanted and he said soccer fabric.  He loves playing soccer and his favorite team is the Barcelona, Spain team.   

Don't know that I can buy that fabric in the USA but he said black and white soccer ball design would be fine.   HOWEVER.... grandma has a plan for another project for my beloved grandson for next Christmas.

Hope all of my blog friends and those beyond had a good Christmas holiday.  

Warm hugs and Christmas cheer to you all.
