I noticed that the poll for mayo versus Miracle Whip will end by tomorrow night, so if you haven't voted and would like to, now is the time! I've checked every now and then and it's been pretty consistent at mayo 60 percent, Miracle Whip 40 percent. Interesting.
I wrapped up the Pinwheels and Roses quilt today in pretty gift wrap and left it for the recipient to find--probably in the morning. I wish I had about ten quilts to give away, because it seems there are many people in my life that I'd love to gift with a quilt right now.
Hubby found out the wife of a long time friend of his had passed away a month or so ago--not unexpectedly as it was a long illness, but she wasn't all that old. I bet a quilt would be a comfort to Hubby's friend.
My friend Lisa and my mother-in-law are both having surgery. Lisa had hers today--and everything went well--and my mother-in-law will be having hers tomorrow. I'd like to give quilts to both of them to snuggle with as they recover.
Another friend of mine lost her mom last week. My friend quilts and probably doesn't need one from me, but giving a quilt to someone is a tangible sign of caring. What I'd really like to give her is a warm hug and a little time to talk together; but it will have to wait because she's in Canada right now with her family.
I think I would like to try to find time to quilt a couple of my "orphan" quilt tops so I can set them aside to give to the people I care about when comfort is needed. I think I should also try to find time to make a few baby quilts to keep on hand. How about you? Do you have quilts you've set aside to give when the need arises?
