My Disappearance -

- was due in part to teaching Chelsee to make a quilt of her own! Last summer I talked my sister-in-law, Jenna, into making a quilt for herself (she needed a project). After returning to school Jenna was met with shock and awe of her craftiness, and a few envious friends. Chelsee is her best friend from high school and asked if she could make a quilt while on break. Here's the top, you may recognize the pattern from the quilt in my etsy shop, a nice quick project. We worked off and on for three days to finish the top. She needs some batting and we hope to quilt it next week sometime.

I have blocks waiting for me to iron them right now, and I'm hoping to have a top this weekend :)

A beautiful quilt and a beautiful proud smile!

YOU should be proud too - what an admirable thing you have done. At this time of year with spare time at a premium, you sacrificed yours to mentor this young girl - CONGRATS! It will be a lifetime memory for her and no doubt the seeds of great things to come!
