One Monthly Goal – October

For my One Monthly Goal, I am going to quilt and bind this baby quilt.  I have made this quilt for Kevin’s (man-friend) sister who’s  pregnant.  I kind of did my own thing.  I really liked the center baby pin fabric, so I did not want to cut it up too much.  I plan to use my heart ruler for this one.  Not sure of thread color, but it will likely be something multi colored.

Kellie, another story…

You may have seen this photo before.  But I need it to tell my Kellie story.  This is my lateFB_IMG_1503081791295 husband Derrick and Kellie.  We were in Las Vegas together because Derrick was in a Pool tournament.

So, when I married Derrick, Kellie was the only one in my family that did not have something negative to say about it.  Whether she liked it or not, she kept it to herself.  She was always kind to Derrick, which is more than I could say about anyone else in my family.  Yes, I met/knew him in an odd unconventional way, and yes he was younger than me.  But when my first husband took his own life and left me with 2 kids, he was the only one that stepped into a really ugly, messy situation and was willing to do whatever was needed. He was coming to town to visit his sister for the holidays.  He asked if he could stop by to check on me.

He never left.  He did not feel like he could.  Things just went from there.  I know Kellie and her husband, Matt, talked about it.  He told me when we were sitting in the hospital by Kellie’s side.  They decided if he made me happy (which he did) that was good enough for them.  This is just one of the many many reasons I can’t imagine life without her.  She stood by me, always.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

Love the Ones you are with

  1. I can’t wait to see the quilting on this one. I’m anxious to try my rulers out, but have been bogged down with piecing lately. Once that is done, I’ll have 3 tops to quilt. I should get some good practice in then.

  2. Hi Lori,
    I hope you have found some comfort in remembering these stories about Kellie and sharing them with us. Standing by a sister – that’s what good sisters do. I am sure there were times when she did something that others may not have understood but you stood by her as well. Nothing can ever break that bond. You may not physically have her with you, but you have her in your heart and in your ear. You can hear those special comment she would have for you when you have doubts – it just won’t be verbal any longer. She’ll be hovering around you until you have some peace. {{Hugs}} a bunch for you. I’m glad you can make a quilting goal for this month! I look forward to seeing it complete. ~smile~ Roseanne
