Last May when my mother went into Hospice care I felt the need to make something simple and colorful. I found a pack of 5" sqaures in my stash and set to work. I made "X" blocks with the warm colors and "O" blocks with the cool colors. I added some embroidery on the sashings using a sparkle thread. When I showed it to my mom, she loved it. I hung it in her apartment where it stayed until she passed away in July. Whenever I would leave my mom, I always said to her, "Ok, mom, gimme a hug and a kiss."
