Recently, I ran across an article in Southern Living Magazine about the devastating tornadoes in Alabama last year, and then I discovered this video clip about the story of a special memory quilt on their web site. If you've got a Kleenex with you, go here and watch the clip "Lost and Found: Memory Quilt".
I'd love to know if you have any special memory quilts. I'd like to do some more, but with 12 and 16 year old boys, I really don't have any ideas. What kind of memory quilts have you done? Maybe you can help me. Drawing more pictures or making more handprint fish wouldn't go over well right now! The boys have done a few quilts for school projects over the years. In fact, one is hanging up in the lobby of the elementary school and the other is on display in the school library. I don't have any pictures of them right now, so that will have be another post.
Right now, I'm working on another bag to swap with my friend Mary Pat. This bag swap thing is really fun! Zippers are all over the place around here! So are kids. Ugh! Cold and flu season has gotten the best of us and both boys have been sick this week. Luckily, I think everyone is on the mend now and the sickness is behind us. Thank goodness! Have a healthy, safe, and fun weekend!
