Sometimes we would go to the movies in the afternoon. We went bowling, played softball, went to the park. We ran around Grandma and Grandpa's like little maniacs. There was always, hugs, kisses, and laughter.
Like most families these days, we don't get together for holidays anymore (except Christmas). We are spread out from California to Texas to Wisconsin....well you get it right? But when we see each other it is like no time has passed at all. A lot of us are friends on facebook LOL.
I just wanted to explain why my cousins are so very special to me. Why you might ask? Lat year when my Mom died, a couple of my cousins told me that they still have the baby blankets that I crocheted for their kids and that they still use them. I was surprised and touched. I decided that I was going to give each of my first cousins a quilt. (Also my Aunts and Uncles on Mom's side of the family). That will be 29 quilts. (Sadly some the cousins have passed away already and a couple I am not in contact with) .Then I will work on the other side of the family, which is MUCH smaller. And of course the closest in law cousins.
The first three quilts left for the cousins last week.
The hubs is not the best quilt holder. ;)
I know the quilts will have good homes. I hoped they will be loved and enjoyed.
