    First LapQuilt Finished

    Ladies and Gentlemen:

    I am so excited I was able to finish the lap quilt I created for my daughter's Kindergarten teacher's mother. She had to let her husband go to a long-term care facility after a stroke about 2 1/2 months ago. I hope you like it.

    To all those who helped with my cat, thanks he looks so much better with eyes and whiskers! I am in your debt!

    Evelyn

    Thank you for all your kind words. I know that my skills are limited but every piece makes me that much better. I am so glad you like it as much as I do. I loved making it. Now it's on to making placemats for my boyfriend's sister and possibly his mother as well.

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! The eyes and whiskers to add some life to it. Thanks for sharing.

    The good news is - you're the pilot!
