Smith Mountain Morning

I finished another flimsy this one is very special it has fabric from Gary's Jeans,
 Fabrics from Fred's Shirt and Fabric from a House dress of mine ,mixed with some of my Stash .
It made me cry to think about my Son Gary gone now for 9 Years, he would have been 46 this Year I miss him every day .
thank you Maria for sending me the Jeans
I want to rename the Quilt "Gary's Hay Stock Rock "

we were very busy at Sindy's site swapping Birthday Cupcake Blocks they are very cute
i mailed all of mine out for the whole year i never know when my dear Husband is going in for a emergency .
to bad that not all People consider that they might not be able to do something once they singed up for it
so that's why my little quilt flimsy is a bit smaller then i thought it would be ,but it came out cute
