My SIL has ovarian cancer. Her prognosis is good, but she is going through chemo and radiation. Most people talk about being so cold whenever this happens so I try to make a take-along quilt for them to use as a hug and for warmth. Teal/aqua is the color of the ovarian cancer ribbon. This one contains lots of the same fabrics I used for my MIL's quilt and hope that will bring a little extra comfort to my SIL. I am going to loosely quilt it using a high loft batting. That will keep it lightweight yet provide warmth. My goal is to finish the binding by the end of the week. I will post a pix when it is done.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
