Holiday gifts



There's not been a lot of quilting going on here over the past few months ... in fact ... none.

But it is Christmas ... and it's time to get a few small gifts put together to share with family and friends.

My husband, John, works with a local charity and delivers groceries to 8 shut-ins on a bi-weekly basis.  About two weeks ago, he said he wanted to do something for them for the holiday and asked if I would be willing to make some of my Christmas-tree potholders for them to go with his home-made biscotti.  I'll be honest, it's Christmas, I work for a large retailer and I'm kinda busy right now.

But after a little thought, I realized that John has made friends with these people and I wanted to support him ... so I finished the final hot pads last night.

This afternoon, he sent me the following email at work ...  "The hot pads were a bit hit today ... some of the people I deliver to told me that was the only present they would get this year and they were all touched by the gift".

That ... puts it all in perspective.

Merry Christmas everyone.


All the best.
