We spent that evening down at my parents lake house to have dinner. My step-dad Wayne had me work on a project for him to help with his sleep apnea. His doctor suggested that until he can be fitted with a CPAP that he sew a pocket onto the back of a t-shirt, put a tennis ball in it, and secure inside (button, velcro, snap, etc) to keep him from rolling onto his back at night. I took a tennis ball and estimated how big the pocket should be. I waaaayyyyy over estimated this figure but I guess if he ever needed to put a second ball in there or a larger ball he would have some room so I am not too worried about it. I took one of his t-shirts and traced a square along the bottom so I could use the hemmed edge as the top of my pocket. I then cut my rectangle out through both layers of the fabric and then used one of my rectangles as a template to cut from the rest of the shirt. I ended up getting 5 rectangles but I am sure I could have gotten 6 if I had adjusted the size of my template a little because I was just a little shy for the last rectangle.
I got some pictures of my sisters' quilts

Matt couldn't come with me because he had an early hockey game on Saturday. He scored a "hat trick" (3 goals in 1 game) so that was awesome but I missed him and I missed Lucy. It was good to come home to my Lovie and Boo!
Last but not least, I am working on a project for a family friend who is setting up a scholarship at Virginia Tech in honor of her husband who passed away a few years ago. One of the ways she is trying to raise money is through a silent auction so I am going to make something to donate. Any ideas of what I should do?
