Isaac was home sick one day last week and I subtly persuaded him to clean out his closet. I couldn’t believe how much he outgrew just from one year. I think we cleared out at least 1/2 of the clothes. (Got a little head start on my Lenten purge!)
We also worked on something I am SO excited about. When Isaac was just in grade school I started saving a few special t-shirts here and there-from sports, races, schools, dances, special events. My friend Janemakes these awesome t-shirt quilts which are perfect for sentimental gifts-particularly graduation. I was going to make it a surprise and pick out the t-shirts on my own, and them realized I had NO idea which ones would have the most meaning. I ended up telling him about it, and he easily picked out the dozen that meant that most to him. When he had all 12 of them laid out on the bed, I teared up. This is becoming one of those teary years I think. I packed them up and shipped them off.
Jane will work her magic and I can’t wait to see the finished product.
Here is an example of one of her finished quilts.
