Religious Medal Bracelet

A few years ago, my sister-in-law, Chris, admired a religious medal bracelet that one of my son's friends was wearing. Jeff's friend was originally from Brazil and that was where she had gotten her bracelet. The bracelet had dozens of medals on it. Chris mentioned the bracelet a few times and tried unsuccessfully to buy one. I thought I could make one and proceeded to buy religious medals on Ebay. I then lost interest in the project. Chris just turned 50 and her husband had a birthday party for her on Saturday. I remembered the unfinished bracelet and finished it for her gift.

In this photo, Chris is admiring the quilt her mom (looking over Chris' shoulder) made for her. Chris' mom hand-quilted the beautiful blue and yellow quilt.
PS To all my English teacher friends, I did check Mr. Google and he said I could use Chris' or Chris's and that either was correct as long as I was consistent. Whenever I write on my blog I worry about my grammar and spelling, so please forgive my mistakes.
