This year, camp felt like we were missing someone. My dear friend Sue had gotten double pneumonia in February and several times in 6 weeks her family thought they were going to lose her. Her recovery was and is very long and very hard. I decided we should all make a quilt for her so everyone made a little 6" block and we put them together and I gave it to her on the Tuesday after the retreat was over. Rest assured... she cried!
So remember those nickels I took... well in need of starting something new, I dug out some nickles and made this little lap quilt. It was fun and easy and It felt good to start and finish something all in one day.

And then it was time to come home and pack up.
|To be bound|
This weeks goals are to get this pile of quilts bound. The two bottom ones have been quilted for a couple of years, the top two have been quilted in the last year and the middle one has been on my bed at least ten years without a binding. I am going to bind it first... I think it deserves it!
