One of my coworkers lost her husband last year on November 30, 2009 and this year for Christmas, she asked me what she could do with his old shirts. I told her to bring them to me and some pictures of him with their kids and grandchildren. I made her son, daughter and hers Mother-in-law a lap quilt. I hope the pics come through so you can see them. They are kind of like crazy quilts-no rhyme or reason, but they meant a lot to these kids and his Mom. It was hard for me to do this as I grew up around the corner from him and went to school with him- this was more a labor of love for me as he was my friend too. I am also working on one for my coworker, but she does not know this-it will be a big surprise for her. I will send another pic when I get it finished.

The Oldest Daughter and her kids

The Son who thinks he is a pirate

The Mother in Law
