Past weekend

Hi friends!
I think I made five of these last week.
This one!
And this one I made yesterday. Just some mindless sewing.
Trying to use up some of the scraps I have  running over the top of the box.
Haven't made a dent yet.
Some of you know I make lap quilts for woman friends that have cancer and one of the friends husband called me Sat morning to say his wife had died.
Made for a bad weekend, No arrangements yet.
I think this is the one I made her , some how it never got to my pinterest board. But I go for months and don't get on their to update.
I had know her for neatly thirty years .
She was the sweetest and to young to go like that but lived years longer than she would have if Doctors didn't have all the knowledge they have now.
She had bone cancer and had a rod in her spine.
She will be missed.
