This is mine.. Kelly is a July baby.. She is a cancer...if you look up cancer people, she is it. She has been a great goal setter for her family. Her life is family. Her children know the sacrifices she has made so that they may achieve their dreams.
She is the most loving aunt, and both Tory and Alex will attest to this. She is the best step daughter anyone could ask for, my sweetie will attest to this. She is the best daughter, I attest to this.
Thank you for being my daughter.

It's not that it wasn't fun at the beginning to make, it's not that it isn't pretty, it's not the size, which is queen, it's the time that it's taken to just do it! It's been since last April when I got the issue of All People Quilt that I saw this and just had to do it! Well, I've almost done it!
I'm sick and tired of looking at it. Does that ever happen to you to a project that you've done, and felt the same way? I start a project and finish it, then move on. With this one, I've had to take a break, mind you I did send it out to be basted.
I also had a hip replaced, and 6 weeks of therapy. But that's not the point. I'm sick of doing this one, that's all. I just can't imagine a hand quilter making a queen size quilt and not getting sick and tired of the project.
AND....I still have the geese to outline, the binding to put on, which thank goodness it's done as Helen (my private teacher lol) made it last summer on one of those glorious afternoons at the cottage.
Did I sound like the sucky puppy?
