Happy Holidays

Standard

I hope you all had a Happy Holiday. Ours was wonderful, our childern, grandchildern and of course the ‘grand dog’ were with us.
My grand daughter loves ‘sock monkey’. That is an understatement. Last fall I found a ‘sock monkey’ at the Houston Quilt Show, so that was one gift taken care of. I also had bought ‘sock monkey’ fabric. I made her a quilt with the fabric and put the quilt and monkey under the tree. It warmed all of our hearts to see the joy on her face. All afternoon the quilt and monkey were her consant companions.
This is why we make quilts, to make memories. The quilt may be dragged on the floor or shared with the dog; decades from now the quilt may not exist but the memory of this Christmas will stay with her. Perhaps as a story told to her grandchildern.
I hope your Holidays were memory makers too.
