Comfort Quilt #2, and ~

Larry is home, Merry Christmas! He spent 8 days in the hospital, and it was so-o long to us both! He came home Thursday night and had his first good night of sleep. He still needs to have some tests done, but I'm glad to have him home!

Here is the second quilt, completed in time for Christmas. This one is for the oldest daughter (who turned 18 since her father's passing in September). Again, the quilt was made up from her Daddy's shirts, chosen by her for colors and/or memories of hers. 



The first label was from the collar...









 and the second from the buttonhole placket.








I hope you have a Merry Christmas. We are thankful for friends, family, and the love of the Lord!

  12. I am glad that Larry came home and that you got to enjoy Christmas. I think yours and my life seem to keep crossing as we spent Christmas eve in the ER with my daughter. She had an infection. Maybe 2012 will be a slower year!

  13. I've been away from my computer for several days so have missed checking in on blogging friends. So glad Larry is home and feeling better. I don't think the hospital would be a fun place to spend Christmas day!

    Your quilts turned out wonderful. Love the idea of using the collar for the label. The packaging was clever too.

    Wishing you the very best for the New Year!

  17. Nothing is more thoughtful, more touching than a gift from the heart. I know the girls will hold these quilts close and have such precious memories to keep with them the rest of their lives. So, so neat!
