I finished appliqueing the final border of A Little Porch Time in Ohio late January and Thursday it will be flying to Europe!
When my son was in Denmark he had to have emergency surgery. Because the bleeding would not stop he had to go back into surgery twice. Obviously we were in the US and didn't know all this was happening until he was safe, but she (and grandmum) watched out for him as if he was her son. We felt an instant connection when we went to visit and we have since then. Their family came to the US and we had a wonderful time hosting them. We got the news in August that the host grandmother had cancer (in remission now) so my son made a trip then.
He will leave for Denmark Thursday. I've been quilting like crazy and didn't feel like I had done a very good job cause I was in such a hurry, but now that it is bound and washed I feel happy about it, sad, but so happy I had the top to finish and get to her. They have a big porch that we spent most of our time in and this quilt suits her perfectly. She understands the love that comes from being wrapped in a quilt.
