My Latest Quilt

Today was uneventful, if you don't count the phone call from my sophomore college student, asking me how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. Honestly, how hard can that be? We got thru that crisis and she is on her merry way this evening.

The picture above is of the last quilt I have made. Actually it's just a top at this point, but it should be finished in the next week. This is my sixth quilt for Charlotte's Garden. It is a yahoo group that makes quilts (to the child's specifications) for seriously ill children. This little girl said she loved rubber duckies, so here is my take on that request.

My daughter called early this morning on her way to Microbiology. She was taking her first test in the class and I could tell she was nervous. Keep your fingers crossed for her and say a little prayer that she gets a great grade. I've talked to so many people about this class and they are not very encouraging. Some said they failed and had to retake the course and others said they just got by by the skin of their teeth. Below is a picture of my little darling (she's the blonde) and her new roommate for this year.

What a cute quilt! I love duckies! lol It's just adorable. Do you have a pattern for it? I'd love to make it for a friend of mine who recently had a child.

You know, a long time ago (1982 - how time flies! lol ) one of my Philosophy professor said to me "take care of the learning and the grades will follow". Wise words that I didn't appreciate until much later in my life. In my first year of college I had a tendency to study for the grade. Good luck to your dd.
