Flip Flops for a sad friend

I have a friend that LOVES flip flops....   When we moved to Oklahoma last summer and my older daughter met Becky, she said "I can see you guys being good friends" and so it was. She is the Relief Society President and I am one of her counselors, our kids hang out and we carpool, have Cheesecake together, and have much in common.  I was looking forward to many happy years hanging out in Oklahoma with my friend.

After a series of miracles we have been given the opportunity to move to Utah in July for my husband to teach at UVU.  Great to be close to family again, but not so great for new friends in Oklahoma.

So what did I do?  I made her a quilt, of course.  I guess now I can say that I make quilts for people I love AND people I make sad.
