Last winter one of my favorite church friends became ill and spent weeks in the hospital. (Actually, several church friends spent weeks in hospitals and rehab; it was a bleak winter in more ways than one.)
One of the sad things was that for at least a couple of years, I have been planning to make quilts for several of my favorite church friends who are aging beautifully but becoming frail. When Ms. Ruth became ill, I'd already begun planning a quilt for her to be made from fabrics chosen by Ms. Mary. Our Victory Quilt ministry gave her a quilt, but I began searching for time to make this one:

If you are a quilter, I hope you've had a chance to make a quilt filled with love and prayers for one of your special friends too.

Happy quiltmaking...and knitting....
