Tough couple of weeks

My nephew suffered a head trauma a few weeks ago.  It went from his being released in a couple of days, to  needing surgery and perhaps some rehab, to his passing away.  It has been quite a blow to all of us, especially his parents and sisters.

When we thought it might 'just' be surgery and some rehab I threw together this fleece blanket.  He is (was) quite a Vikings fan.  I backed it with purple fleece.  Jo-Ann's was having a great sale, and I had a coupon so I was able to get the purple backing that I wanted rather than the wrong color that was on sale.

Adam was 6'5" tall so I used 3 1/2 yards front and back so it would be big enough to cover all of him.  I'm so sorry he isn't here to use it.  RIP sweet boy.
