Quilt

The storm warnings were well founded and we are sogged in with the heavy, wet, white stuff.

Schools were not in session and the snow plows were busy, busy, busy.

Housebound, I had time to finish my memory quilt.  I used Mike's flannel shirts and denim to represent his jeans.  It wasn't really that easy to work with, but it will be a cozy reminder for me on chilly evenings.

Hi Olga, I sent you an email awhile back.and you responded and I lost it. I have for the past 11yrs lived in the 200 +yr old house on 534 Delaware with my husband and 4boys. And are looking for history on this home on years past and if you have time if you could email me that would be wonderful . Not sure if an email comes up but mine is parkavekidz@aol.com

What a wonderful idea. I remember years ago when I did needlework I could remember the days of my life as I worked on that item. The quilt is so bright and lovely.

What a great idea to use his shirts. It is almost like having his arms around you anytime you want. It is truly beautiful!
