walking and walking

My husband and I really enjoy walking, particularly with Gus and our grandson. Today we decided to go down to the part of town we grew up in and walk downtown from there like we did when we were kids. We had so much fun trying to remember who lived in what house and talking about how much fun it was to grow up in a small town. There was a small service station that we used to love to go to and get those small Cokes and moon pies. It was a long time ago but it sure doesn't seem like it.

I was able to get into my sewing room today while our sweet boy was napping. I have a close friend who is undergoing treatment for liver cancer. I love Tonya's hope quilts so I stole/borrowed her idea. I was thinking of a small wall hanging but now I am wondering if I should make her a small lap quilt that she can take with her to the hospital or use at home.

depending on what treatments she's having a small lap quilt to snuggle under and wrap up in might be very appreciated -- some people feel so coldduring some of the cancer treatments....

Regardless of what you do, I love what you've got now :-)

that's a wonderful HOPE and what a great use for it. A lap quilt of HOPE sounds wonderful too.

A lap quilt would be like a hug she could take with her.
