Good afternoon! I started this piece several days ago. The letter J took forever it seemed. Unfortunately I will not be finishing this piece as I am running out of 991 and I can't see making a special trip all the way out to Jo Anns just for that number so I'll finish it next year I guess. I'll start another Christmas project tomorrow.
I hope to finish up my Christmas shopping this afternoon. A friend said she would take me to the final two places after she got out of work today. Not sure what time she gets out of work.
Like so many others I am in shock and horror over the killings in CT. My heart goes out to those families. All I could think is our little Johnny is 6 and in that age group. One little boy had his 7th birthday just last Tuesday, same day Johnny turned 6. I saw Johnny and his cousin Jake so full of excitement and playing being noisy so happy and excited at seeing us at his birthday celebration and I thought that little boy probably was the same that day, and the family enjoying him little did they realize two days later he'd be gone. A group on line is doing quilts for the families of all the victims and I am excited to be doing at least 2 squares for them more if I can. They are planning on a quilt for each family plus some sibblings like a twin sister, of one victim, another's two little sisters ages 3 and 4 and a neighbor who took in and comforted 6 of of the children plus the uncle of the shooter who was his mother's brother. A big undertaking but they seem to be getting the stitchers. I just hope it doesn't take too much away from Coles Quilts, Love Quilts, or others as they still have the need too. My next piece after Christmas will be for a little boy at Love Quilts who chose religious as theme of his quilt.
Well, until next time Happy Stitching.
