Whew!! I made it!
I was really pushing this deadline.
I had a T-shirt and photo ministry quilt that needed to be done by April 1st, so that it could get to a long arm person and then to the recipient by April 19th.
I know--this is even pushing the deadline for long arm, but it is going to my hometown,
Pleasant Hill, Mo...population 6,739...Salute!!
(oh sorry...this isn't Hee Haw is it? I got a bit carried away.)
Anyway--I completely trust the long arm person there to get it done. She understands the need.
And she knows that I didn't have a big window of time either.
I am not at liberty to discuss much about this quilt, other than a mother tragically lost her grown son on April 19th of last year. This years anniversary of his death will no doubt be hard on her but she will be able to surround herself with him.
Included are his T-shirts, photos, and jeans.
The inner border was made from some of his dress shirts,
while the outer border is music notes.
The recipient chose everything for this quilt...
the colors, fabric, layout; all I did was piece it together.
This is a big load off my shoulder because I have had several time-sensitive quilts.
It will be nice to breathe a little.
Oh, and since I have blog friends from all over the world,
I am betting that most of you have NO idea what Hee Haw is.
Hee Haw was a variety show that used to come on television once a week when I was a kid--
and it's one of those shows that warms my Hillbilly heart!
They would pick a small farm town every week and say the population,
then all the musicians and actors would jump out of the cornfield and say, "Salute".
My post title today is from the show's theme song.
I was looking for a clip...and there are so many great ones!
I couldn't pick just one...impossible.
So, here are a few Hee Haw videos
for your Sunday Hillbilly entertainment...
