Do you remember this post about the little quilts I am making for the young daughters of my dear friend Pam who passed into Jesus' arms last June?
I explained my own grieving process since Pam died, and why making these memory quilts has been such a slow journey.
Well, the Lord is good, and it was by His grace that yesterday I sandwiched the layers, and machine quilted them both. I added the binding, and last night one of the quilts was finished...
I've added a block I embroidered from Brenda Riddle's "Betsy's Closet" pattern to the centre of each quilt. Perfect for little girls.
Now I just need to stitch down the binding on the pink quilt...
I have taken fabrics from some of Pam's clothes to make the quilt backings. The girls will be wrapped in their mama...
Lida is a blog reader who has become a friend, and she told me a few weeks back that she was making me a pear. Now, if you regularly read my blog you'll know that I collect pears.
The mail arrived yesterday and "my oh my" what a pear she made!
The fabric weave is very fine, so those little cross stitches are teeny tiny. Aren't I blessed!?
Thank you sweet Lida. xxx
It's now sharing my favourite shelf with some sister pears...
Blossom has a day off work today so we'll be out car shopping with Mr E this afternoon.
I can't believe it - my baby will have her own car!
