181 Colette's Cuddle Quilt

I have had a quilt-in-my-heart for my dear forever-friend, Colette, for a long, long time.  But all the other deadline quilts kept me from getting to it.  Well, she sure created a deadline for me this month... surgery.  It seems to becoming a reoccurring pattern:  a girlfriend who announces her surgery and I immediately go into action; absolutely determined they recover  in a cuddle quilt.  Much like Judi's quilt from her surgery a couple years ago, these quilts have countless stitches representing the prayers I say while my dear ones are dealing with their medical procedures.  I find that the quilting helps my nervous energy as I think about them and pray for their recovery.  I just love seeing them smile when they get their surprise quilt, just as Colette did on Wednesday when I surprised her with it.  A quilt is a hug...

179 Goddaughter Sarah's High School Graduation Quilt

My beautiful, smart, amazingly talented goddaughter, Sarah, is graduating from high school.  I just continue to be amazed at how how fast they all grow up.  She told me she was hoping for a graduation quilt with purples and blues.  I hope she likes it!

The ABC Book Sarah dedicated to us, her Godparents, when she was in kindergarten.

I just can't believe she is graduating.  Where has the time gone?
