Then it was my turn to have a cold or respiratory virus. Luckily, I have gotten by on Advil Cold and Sinus and Nyquil to sleep. These illnesses have caused a little vacation from blogging.
I still had to get up and at it, each day for my holiday job in the mall. It has been a blast working at the fast pace of the holidays. I was hired for the holiday season back in October. Only in the last week, the rush is on and I have been working every day for at least four hours, sometimes more. Then I have been coming home to quilt on memory quilts.
My neighbor is making 8 of these memory quilts: 4 for the grandsons and 4 for the daughters. The quilts are approximately 52" x 56". The center strips are 2 1/2" strips cut from all of Dad or Grandpa's shirts. The picture above is what the grandson's quilts look like.
I am quilting each with Navy thread by Omni and the quilting pattern is Ocean Froth by Anne Bright.com. I have two of the four grandson quilts done.
Today I am linking up with.....Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Link a Finish Friday, Freedom Fridays, Create with Joy's Friendship Friday and Crazy Mom Quilts.
I hope you are enjoying the Christmas season.
Yours in quilting,
