For Rachel

here is my second finish of the year.  It's a quilt I actually started last year but finished this year.  My sister has cancer and is going through chemo and I wanted to do something for her.  The back is ballet slippers because she (and I) used to take ballet lessons when we were young and she loves dance.  I hope she likes it and that it reminds her that I am thinking of her and praying for her.

You know she will love it, and all the prayers and love that come with it. The ballet slipper background is such a thoughtful touch. I'm sending a prayer along, too ~
hugs, pokey
