    This was made for a special person. I started it when I found she was going to have chemo, a few days later they cancelled her chemo and sent her home to die. 2 to 4 wks is what they are saying now. Going to deliver it today.

    It's beautiful and will comfort her in her last days of living here. Sigh... so much cancer lately.

    That is absolutely breath-taking. I know it will be a comfort to her. You have a lot of work in that quilt. Thank you for your kindness.

    You know I've been bothered by how do I give this, what do I say? Hey heres a quilt because your dying. When I started making it I thought she would pull through with the chemo and it could be something she could take with her during the procedure. You'll never really get to enjoy this but here. Theres a part of me that feels guilty and afraid to give it to her. I'm so sick of cancer, its the third one in a year in our circle.

    It's a beautiful quilt! Dresdens are one of my favourites.
    Maybe you could say something like....."when I saw this pattern, I just had to whip it up. And the more I quilted this, the more I thought of you, so I would like you to have this"

    I'm so very sorry to hear about your friend! The quilt you made for her is stunning! It was obviously a labor of much love...hugs for you both!

    As to the "what do I say" thing...you just give it to her and say... "because I love you"! Words won't be a big deal...she'll know and you'll know and you'll both cry and bond...
