The angel sings.......


My sister saw a piece in Pottery Barn and thought to herself, "I can make one out of my scraps." Sharon's first try at words and they are beautiful!




While Sharon was finishing "to the world", Roxy was giggling as we got the Angel ready and have begun to quilt her beauty. The lamb has curls and in this photo you can see the dress is getting some shading. I do not think I have ever loved a fabric as much as I love this angel face. This will take me many many hours to quilt and am looking forward to the time when she and I are playing together.

As I see my Christmas quilts lying on my bed, each ready for Roxy, I smile and am so grateful that quilting allows for such variety and can be specialized for the recipient. I hope that this holiday season greets you with cheer and CELEBRATIONS!

Love, Em

Such a talented family. I love your Mom's quilt in the side bar. Your sister did such a nice job on her letters. And I love your Angel. It is adorable. Can't wait to see the finish. Hugs

This really inspires me and once a lady did a simple tree in one of my classes for her door and then wrote "Joy to the world at the top and bottom"-your idea leaves a real impact....keep up the good work-I am thankful for you
