Thanks for reminding me, Nines!

I did my usual morning routine - get up, check email, check and see if Nines had posted anything new. And she had! Reading her rather hyper post (and she claims to be off caffeine!) reminded me that I had not posted the picture of my friend Jim, the sweet man who I made a QOV for. Yes, I am the floating head next to him. Jim is due to be deployed to Iraq for a month sometime next spring. Then he is getting out. He has a extremely sweet family. Me and his wife agreed that if we lived closer we could be really good friends. Not that you can't be friends long distance!

My little guy is home sick today with a fever. Of course he doesn't want me out of his sight. I will have to convince him to come sit in the sewing room!

Hope everyone has a great day!


  1. Cool that you were able to meet the recipient of your QOV quilt. Hope your little one is feeling better soon.

  2. hope you can make a good "nest" in the sewing room for your little one...

  3. Great picture of the QOV and recipient. Hope your little son is feeling better!

  4. You can just tell how sweet he is! The quilt "quilted up" so pretty! I completely forgot to take a picture of my finished one! Bummer. Hope Ian's illness doesn't linger- I dread fevers- they wear me out- even when I am not the one with the fever! I miss you!

  5. Hope that Ian is on the road to health and lively boyhood again.

    How nice that you actually have a pic of you, the quilt, and the soldier. Quite a meaningful event for all of you!

    Very nice quilt, I might add!

  6. I like this - love the star in a star in a star look. It'll be great comfort to him when he's far away from home.
