    Christmas Project: Top done, think I'll make it?

    Last year I decided to make one winter quilt per year for each of my family members. My cousin lost her precious mom (and my very special Tante (Aunt) from the Netherlands at Thanksgiving, so I'm hoping to bring a little cheer. I think next year I'll get started earlier, sure hope I get done in time...wish me luck!

    The 2nd pic is last years, for my daughter & son-in-law. I also made an exception last year and made a similar quilt for my nail gal of several years. She was without her husband for the holidays due to some very sad circumstances beyond their control and I woke up one morning knowing I just had to make her a quilt. She then told me she was planning on skipping the holidays altogether until she received my gift, she was quite overwhelmed to say the least. She said she watched Christmas movies wrapped up in it and was able to get through the holidays. God has blessed her and her husband is now home, so all is well.

    These are beautiful. What a lovely thing for you to do to give someone a quilt that was need right at that time (smile). Blessing to you and yours. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I love what you've done with both of those panels. They no longer look like panels - they are works of art.
