Time.....It is about TIME I come up with my plan for a dear grandmother.....





Time.....When you read this word, Did you ask yourself if you could have some more added to each day?.......

I wrote earlier that I was going to start a new quilt. The sock monkeys went with me but the angel won out! And I am so glad that she did....In the very early phase and the dodgeball floor was my design wall. I wonder how she will shine in the final piece?

Isn't it amazing that a children's quilt pattern, Hickory Dickory in Quilt Mania, can take on a different reverence with the choice of fabric? This quilt is titled, "Time for Healing"...when I look at this angel cradling a lamb, I think PROTECTOR.

This quilt is for a grandmother who is healing from her grandson's death on her watch. A story I think of often and am touched that this woman who I have never met was introduced to me and I have been waiting for inspiration in hopes of gifting balm to her heart.

And my dear husband sent me the beer photo tonight....QUILTERs....our hobby is everywhere and this I will drink to!

Love, Em

Your grandmother quilt will be very healing, I'm sure. Haven't seen that beer before!

Where do you find all this wonderful fabric?!! Internet or local?
I just read yesterday's post and you are truly blessed with wonderful men in your life. But then, you already knew that.
Hugs, Deborah
