    I made lap quilts for my siblings and my mom for Christmas. They loved them. One brother even shed a few tears. A whole lot of work and a whole lot of love went into them and it was totally worth it.

    She said I not only made quilts I made a great memory.

    She's right, Deb.
    I have the wall hanging you made for me, right in front of my machine. Since all my shelves are covered, it is nice to have something pretty to look at. :D
    I can tell these are all very appreciated.
