    Happy Underquilt/Birthday to me!

    My loving wife surprised me this morning for my birthday by letting me know that she had been sneaking behind my back reading up here on the forum about underquilts and contacting Paul at Underground Quilts to inquire about ordering an UQ for me.

    Well she gave up on trying to order one herself, but she did as a present to me give me the green light to order one myself. So, now the wait begins for my newly ordered downy goodness to arrive. I am estimating that it will only weigh about 5lbs less than my DIY z-liners that I created out of an old down comforter. The waiting is going to be tough.

    That's awesome! She must like you a lot.

    You should keep her.
