My Favorite Gift for Christmas



It seems that every year I have at least one gift that I can't wait to give. This year my favorite was a quilt that I made with a lot of help from a friend. It was for my #2 son who has played sports since he was a little thing. He played travel baseball for years and we went to many tournaments. When we were at these tournaments we would buy him a shirt. He had grown out of many of them. Some had holes in them. I made a quilt out of these shirts and his uniforms. This way he will have this quilt to remember his baseball days. I happy to say he loves it.

Great job! My daughter has been playing softball since she was 5 and I've been saving all those t-shirts to do this exact same thing! I figure another few years and I'll be ready!
