Special Quilt for Uncle Tom...




My Dad's brother, Uncle Tom, is not doing very well. He has Lung Cancer and it is in the very last stages. He has been enduring chemo therapy most of the summer in hopes of getting a few weeks of "good quality" time to spend with his family in Kansas City.




Since we are so far away, Tim and I thought if I made him a quilt it would be like sending a "hug" from Idaho. So, I worked pretty frantically and here is the quilt that I made. It was already sent out and received and it seems that both Aunt Joan and Uncle Tom really liked it.




We keep them always in our thoughts and send cards and letters as often as we can. So, hugs and best wishes and hopeful thoughts are being sent your way, Uncle Tom!

This was the best gift. I really like that you did this, it's a very personal thing making a quilt for someone. I am sorry to hear about the cancer that has a hold on Uncle Tom. Keeping your family in my thoughts.
