Wrap me up!



Ok, if it just happens that on the way to the hospice there is a thrift shop. I think that might be a sign that I am suppose to stop in there huh? ( it also possibly means I am a bad person for driving to the hospice by way of the thrift shop.. you pick)
In anycase I shall not quible my moral slippery slope when one finds a handmade quilt as wonderful as this sitting and wating for me to find it! A generous queen size.. two little birds on each corner, just about perfect condition with the exception of a little rip on the backing. ~sigh~ Some things are just meant to be. Not to mention that my MIL was a huge quilter and I think she would would approve.
As an update: mom is still hanging in there but her blood pressure is getting unsteady and we spend time switching on and off being with her.

A very lovely quilt, I like the yellow print the bird is made of.

Birds! I love the birds! Still in CA taking care of my sister. She calls herself Chemo Sobby. Thinking of your MIL and family.

I'm not sure I'm supposed to laugh at any sentence that contains the word "hospice," but when the words "thrift store" are in the same sentence, I can't help it. I love your quilt and I hope you're hanging in there.
