This Haunted House Halloween quilt center is for Kellan's and little Jack's lap/floor quilt. I'm making lap quilts for each of my little grands...Jack, 2 yrs., Hadley, 3 yrs., Kellan, 1 yr., Ella, 15 mos., and Amelia, 8 yrs. BTW, Kellan highly recommends full Naked Reading this Summer for the best enjoyment of books! :]
***I have a special REQUEST: Many of you know that my best friend, Elaine, is struggling with terminal lung cancer. She is brave in the face of a 3-4 mo. prognosis, though she sometimes (and rightly so) believes that she has more time with us than that! And, we applaud her for that awesome spirit.
It's sometimes often difficult to help her keep her spirits up. She can't find something to look forward to, or that would make her feel like she's accomplishing something. She says she only has her tv to look forward to every day.
My REQUEST is that as many as would like to participate would send me a 6 1/2" piece of fabric for a quilting project for her. She used to love to quilt...I taught her last year and she made two quilts...but now she can't cut anything out or sew. I would sew them together for her into a lap quilt for her chemo sessions or to use on her bed. It would be sweet if you would also like to send a note with your name so she would know who the piece is from.
I always tell her how important my worldwide stitching friends are to me. Since she doesn't stitch, she really has no frame of reference for that! Sad to say!! :i Aren't we lucky to have eachother and our stitchery!!
I'm off to stitch and watch the JK Rawlings Special on tv. It seems to be awesome, so far....
Love and hugs,
PS: I've has some strong hesitations to put this request out for Elaine, so for those whom I may offend or upset...please forgive me. I only want to make my friend's life beautiful to the end... Please don't feel you can't comment because of it, as well.... :)
