I'm so excited that my Aunt is finally coming home this Thursday. It's been over a month since she had a tiny stroke that has left no ill effects and she is doing great. She's still a tad weak from it all, but that happens. She's working hard to gain her strength back and luckily she was not paralyzed. Being in Washington state and my Aunts living in North Carolina is tough when these things happen. There truly wasn't a thing I could do if I flew back there and so I wondered what I could do and came up with the idea to make her a quilt for her homecoming. I mailed it off today and she should receive it on Friday. I hope it wraps her in the love I have for her and lets her know that I was there in spirit.
I've had these gorgeous fabrics in my stash and I think they are so happy and cheery that I felt they would be a perfect lap quilt for my Auntie. I used the Eleanor Burns Tossed Nine Patch pattern.
Tomorrow I'm headed out to the Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA area to visit my good friend Robyn. I need some girlfriend time and just to get away for a couple of days. If CR needs me it's a quick 4 hour drive home. I'll be driving Suzi the Subaru and it should be a fun trip. That said all the animals are very concerned about a packed bag in the living room - especially Maddie. I'll be home on Saturday so I'm sure they'll survive. Boy though can't they make you feel guilty with just one look.
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
