I had a comment on my blog about the hand quilt so I thought I'd tell you a bit about it as it is a very special one to me.
In February 2002 because of bad choices from a family member we became guardians of my niece and 2 nephews. It happened fast. We had a senior in high school, one in college and looked forward to being empty nesters. Life doesn't always follow a set plan. I was in a bit of a twister for a while. Some good quilter friends came to the rescue with a quilt to wrap their love around me. Sometimes we think of a quilt as cotton fabric sewn together. In the midst of a crisis it was so much more.
I treasure this quilt and remember fondly the memories we made with my 5 kids for the 5 years we had them.
This was our first summer together. The youngest will be a junior in high school!!
P.S. June is starting with a BANG, so my posts and replies will be sporadic.
