Happy Spring to All! We are on spring break here in Oregon, at least the part I live in. Instead of snow, we've been deluged with rain, but there are promises of nice (even sunny) weather at the end of the week. I have this week off from work (school), I was busy over the weekend finishing up a quilt for my co-worker, Carol. Carol was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Three other co-workers and myself decided to make her a quilt (none of the others are quilters). We stayed after work one night and got the quilt top done, minus the borders. As we quilters know, the top is just the first part of the quilting process. Soooo, I brought the top home, added the borders and this last weekend finished it up. Last Friday I took in a label and had all the staff sign it, there were some heartfelt messages on that label. Yesterday, the three other gals and I took it up to Carol. She loved it! She is facing more chemo/possible surgery and now she has a quilt to help comfort her through that. This is the same chevron pattern I made for my sister in January, so pardon the repetition, but it was a quick, easy pattern and one that I could easily teach to the other gals. The fabric we used was a combined effort, I'm not sure how the orange fabric got voted in, but we went with it!
On another note, I mentioned in my last post that we were remodeling the kitchen. We are finally done! I'm posting a pic of my youngest son's 21st bday dinner in the remodeled (but messy) kitchen.
