Short and Sweet

Here we go...It is only October and I have finished
little thank you presents for the holidays.
100 tissue covers
Also have 80 hand warmers done for the schools..
Working on 40 potholders..I have 22 now..

My blogging friends cheer me up.
Look at this awesome picture Margaret sent me from her cotton farm in Missouri.
Cotton, moon, dirt road and all...Wonderful!!
Her closest quilting shop is 2 hours away, across the Tennessee border.

My leg is still sore and swollen, my heart wears a permanent hole. but
I carry on with the help from my friends.
My son is getting tree trimming and handyman jobs.
He is a great comfort to me and to his children.

Here is a quilt that our widow group (friends in stitches)
is making for Hospice.  Hopefully I will quilt it this weekend.
It used up some orphan blocks I had on hand.
And a random cutting from a T-shirt of my son's 33 years ago..
There is such a cute little pocket on it.
And thanks to Michael, my son became a car mechanic.
It is not that I save everything!!!! you know....

You really are ahead of the game making all your gifts for Christmas. I am so far behind this year. I made tissue covers one year with a pocket in them for where I put bandaids and alcohol wipes. Gave them as a quilt retreat gift where it seems someone is always sticking themselves and needing a bandaid.
