I spent several hours hand washing and ironing each square and triangle. At first I thought I should complete the quilt, as there is a large section of the quilt already started. But I am leaning toward sharing some of the squares with some special people in my life and making something else with with the other pieces, as the idea comes to me. I like the idea of sharing some of these almost 80 year old treasures with the people who are treasures in my life today. Friends who would really appreciate them and make something of special magnificence from them.
Yes, I think I will share the light with others. I can't wait to see what becomes of these squares, hand sewn from 2 ladies almost 76 years ago.
I will be taking a few days off from writing, we have so many crafts, recipes, cleaning projects and other holiday preparations to make-we will be burning the mid night oil. Here we are last night, in a whirl of activity, my husband near me, but transparent in his movement-the kitchen trashed and a gazillion peanut butter kisses are now born unto the confectionery earth, to be enjoyed by our family and friends.
I hope you all have a merry and bright holiday with your friends and family as well.
