But a dear friend Ginny, needed a comfort quilt and I had to help her. Her nephew Zach, was injured when he was 12 in a diving accident. After living 20 more years in a wheelchair, his poor body final gave out. His momma Rosalie, a single mother, now has lost her meaning to live. She began drinking and stopped working, and is in terrible sorts.
I didn't have the time to make the quilt top, but remembered another friend who had donated some of her quilt tops she made as part of classes she took. What a sweet friend I have!
So I was able to throw it on the frame and get it quilted ASAP for Rosalie.
I had forgotten how really bright and cheerful this quilt was. I put a flannel backing on it, as Rosalie's heater is not working the best. This made a nice warm gift. THIS PIC DOES IT NO JUSTICE... It was snowing out and I needed a pic ASAP... it looks very bland here- sorry.
I stitched Zach's name in a block, along with his Aunt Ginny's and my regular 2 little angel names Seth & Zach.
I got a beautiful Thank You card from Rosalie, and hear she is in rehab and getting her life straight. I am so happy for her.
I know those quilts work magic!
My daughter works with a girl who will have a baby in May. So I made a quilt for Celeste and she will give this for the baby shower.
I really liked the colors, bold and bright. It has a pink backing that really made it sweet.
I have about 20 aprons cut I need to get sewed up this week and sent out. Hopefully I can keep on that schedule... I hope!
The snow has finally all melted, and we have had some beautiful sunsets...
It actually hit 70 on friday.... yes sir- Spring is just around the corner.
