    lapquilt top for an injured friend.

    My friend Kathleen, was hit by a driver on the cell phone, turning right and looking left. She has a shattered knee and broken leg and is hoping to get out of rehab by July. I got the lap quilt top done tonight, hope to have it done and quilted by the weekend.
    Kathleen is new in town, doesn't know a lot of people. Please pray for her recovery.
    I am so glad I found this site!!

    What a blessing she has a friend like you! She will love the quilt. It doesn't matter how many people a person knows......it's the GOOD ones that count! Will pray for her recovery.

    Lovely for you to care for her. This is a great way for her to feel your comfort in the form of a quilt.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Sending prayers to your friend for a quick recovery. She will so love that quilt, I spent 8 months in rehab center 2 years ago.....so I know what she is going through. The evening hours really drag and she will have your love hugging her.
