Something pretty Amidst the Darkness

This is a quilt I made my youngest daughter when she was a baby.  It has multiple fabric types for that “special feel”.  I felt I needed to post a picture of a quilt.  They are comforting.






On August 22nd, my older daughter was in a head on collision

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. Oh, my! How awful!! That crash must’ve been horrendous–you’re right, it’s a miracle she came through it. She must be a real fighter and I’m sure she’ll have excellent care and support . . . hang in there and take care of yourself, too.

  2. What a horrible nightmare. Take that beautiful baby quilt to her in the hospital (I’m sure you already have) because she’s still your baby even though she’s all grown up. Best wishes for her speedy recovery. Stay strong. (Hugs)

  3. And I will text you any time in the middle of the night that you like, but hope never for such a reason again. I haven’t even had time for blogs this week, but I was pleased to see your post when I started looking at the e-mails tonight.
