Second time around top

What a difference a few stars and circles make!  So, this is a top again. 

I didn't expect to get this top done so quickly because of all the renovations that are on the go in our home right now.  However, life made a roaring intrusion and everything came to a screeching halt.  My sister's husband suffered a stroke and my days quickly changed direction.  He is home now and my time is being spent with him during the day helping him while my sister is at work.  Quilting and knitting is back in full force and there are lots of projects to keep me busy.

Life is so precious and it is so cruel how quickly your life can change.  Things that we all take for granted .... like speech, vision, ability to connect people to the correct names, strength, walking, writing .... can be gone in an instant.  Please, give a hug and tell your loved ones how much they are loved.

Have a great day!

That's a really neat quilt! You are so right that life can change so quickly. I hope that your BIL regains anything that he might have lost.

Yep, you're right. The stars and circles really set this quilt off.
So sorry about your brother-in-law.
