Work in Progress Wednesday


Over the years I have created a number of crazy quilt Christmas ornaments.  I usually did them in multiples so that I could give some to friends.  Last spring I bumped into a friend who has a few of these ornaments.  She was telling me how special they are to her and every Christmas she hangs them and they remind her of our special friendship.  Wow!  That meant a lot to me.

I have been wanting to create some ornaments for my children.  I have saved a green and white striped shirt from my Dad and a red blouse from my Mom.  I picked out a piece of Christmas fabric and some trim to go with them.  I think this is a kind of cool way to honour my parents.  I hope the kids like them!

I don't know how old your kids are, but one day they will appreciate the connection and the effort you have made to honour their grandparents.
Cq is perfect for Christmas! Have fun!
