    This One's for you Sis!

    Throw I'm gonna give to my sister-in-law, who is more like a sister to me, in memory of our time together taking care of my DH, her brother, when he was dying of cancer. Sent her a pic of the first block I made, and when I said, ain't it pretty, she said, no it's not pretty, it's beautiful. That is exactly what my DH used to say about everything I made. He may have been just a little prejudice!

    I'm sorry for your loss but I'm confident that with such a wonderful sister-in-law, you were able to relieve each other's pain. Your quilt is beautiful and I'm sure she will love it. Thanks for sharing.
