This is my great-niece Emily in front of the top of her t-shirt quilt. She ran cross-country forever. We had her high school graduation open house here at our home yesterday. Guests signed the backing for this quilt with fabric markers.
Some of you locals (Kansas City, MO area) may have seen her on TV news – we had her graduation last Monday in her front room so that her mom – Margaret – could attend. She is losing her 4 year battle with a really aggressive cancer. We are all spending a lot of time caring for her and her family. Sometimes life just sucks!
I hope you are happily quilting,

The cabinet doors are all on – except one that needs a piano hinge and I bought the wrong size. My son started the cove trim at the top and some face fronts for the kick space at the bottom. We sure put in a lot of screws – 12 per door x 26 doors. Now we can protect the kitchen essentials from all the sanding dust from the living room hardwood floor.
I’m partway into a Tee-shirt quilt for Emily – a great niece that is graduating this year. More on that when there is something to show. Right now I’m still fusing interfacing to the areas I cut out. It was great having all the leftover parts to use for wiping off wood stain!
