Day9: Faceless Self Portrait

The past few years I have been very interested in knee socks. I wish one of the daily assignments was a knee-sock portrait.

The past few years I have also been interested in getting all of my clothes and Brian's to fit into the closet we share. That requires culling unnecessary items. On a regular basis.
And after he went to college, then seminary, then was a youth director at one church, then worked at one college, then another college - he acquired a LOT of t-shirts. A lot.

I wanted to practice a t-shirt quilt for him on some of the earlier shirts so I could do a better one on the t-shirts that are really important to him. And I didn't want it to be stiff. I wanted a super soft, worn-in, full-of-memory lap quilt for football watching.


Finished it today! Rock concerts, fraternity parties, summer camp, Alabama script A's - it's all there, people.
And I was totally wearing knee socks.
