Never Ever

I never thought I would make a quilt. Ever.

I am delighted to inform you all, however, that on this day, February 18, 2011, at approximately 2:45 a.m. I completed one while watching Monk with my ShaNeil friend.

This quilt is made from pieces of Jesse's old t-shirts which he refused to throw away (because he has an emotional attachment to everything) and I refused to hold on to under the illusion that they might one day fit again. 

It is a simple quilt, somewhat boring even, but it took me a year to complete and I am proud of it. I have learned a lot and at this very moment I feel like I could make anything in the world...

I wish to thank my mentors: Jo, Bree and Angela for help and support.

Hopefully now that he has a new blanket, he will throw away his ratty old one...fat chance though. There is an unexplained emotional attachment to that too.


  1. Yay for Della! The quilt looks amazing! And I am happy that I got to be there when you finished it. :)

  2. I want to see this quilt! Im glad you finally finished it.
