I finished the last quilt in the nick of time for Christmas, sewing the last bit of binding to the quilt around 9:30 on Christmas Eve...talk about cutting it close! Below is a photo of my Dad with the quilt. To say he loved it was an understatement.
There is a grey ribbon appliqued to the corner of each of the quilts that I made for my family. We are all in this battle called brain cancer together. For those that don't know, my Dad was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in March 2013...to say this year has been rough is an understatement. Our world as we know it was forever changed with the diagnosis. My life is lived in 8 week increments, from one brain scan to the next. I love my Dad so much and it makes my heart hurt so much that he (and the rest of us) have to go through this, but we are in this together; hence the matching quilts with the ribbons.
This is my Dad and my youngest N. They are buddies...always have been and always will be.
I am linking up with Fabric Tuesday, Show and Tell Tuesday , Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop? and Finish it Friday.

I have been a busy, busy bee the last few weeks and since I have no idea who in my family reads my blog, I haven't been able to blog about anything.
All I have to say is that I am so so happy to have pulled it off this year. I ended up super sick right before thanksgiving and it lingered and lingered...turned into an ear infection, sinus infection, a bought of the stomach bug and deviated septum surgery and I am just starting to feel a little better.
I just finished sewing the binding on my last quilty Christmas gift (more about the quilts later). Here is a sneak peak...
Merry Christmas Eve!!
