Here are pictures of the cancer quilt my BFF and I made for my MIL.
The fabrics are from a breast cancer kit but we changed the color of the ribbon to represent lung cancer.
We found this fun heart swirly backing fabric at our local Joann’s store.
We machine embroidered the label.
I also finished the Fat Quarter Shop’s Deck-Ade the Halls stockings block. This project is just a ton of fun.
Yesterday was the only real nice weather day we’ve had in months…at least it feels like months. I had lunch with my Mom at this cute restaurant “Mrs. Mac’s Fillin’ Station.”
The servers have car related names. Jaguar usually waits on Mom but that day we had Dipstick. The flatware is wrapped in oil rags and when you squeeze a lemon and wipe your hands, the oil rag turns black… like oil. Inside of the place is so adorable with license plates and vintage garage signs everywhere. Of course, I didn’t have a camera (other than my phone). I promise to go back and take lots of pictures…you are going to LOVE this place.Oh and the food was good too! (BONUS)
We stopped at a quilt shop where I purchased a little something to make a Halloween quilt for my small hanger and a magnetic pin holder.
Then, wouldn’t you know, there was a yarn store right next door! My sweet Mama bought me a set of my favorite knitting needles. For some reason, I absolutely canNOT knit with straight needles. I do everything on circulars. The Knitter’s Pride Dreamz needles are great. You can attach them to different lengths of cable…whatever your project requires.
