A Handmade quilt….. is there anything more comforting? Especially when it comes from a friend……..
Well, Spring has absolutely, with out doubt found its way up the mountain…..and this girl could not be happier….although I think the Rain Gods have forgotten to turn off the valves….but at least everything is green!
So much going on here at PineRidge Hills, the “Divine Ms. B” has me knee deep in handmade quilting, which I’m just over the moon about….although my Star Spangled quilt is not perfectly squared – it is still mine…..and as I said I will wear my battle scars with pride! I wanted to share with you a heartfelt lap handmade quilt she made for me and the heartwarming story that goes with it…..
While moving my sewing room downstairs to the retired home office, I came across an old box of crocheted pieces that my mom had done, having so many pieces already, I offered them to Ms. B in hopes she would find a good home for them. She did…..she came up the road to visit the week before Easter and while we were sipping tea, the husbands deep in conversation about wood piles, she handed me a gift box and this was in it…..
I was speechless! which is quite a feat for me……this wonderful friend had taken all the pieces my mom had crocheted and made a lap quilt for me….and now she is teaching me how to quilt – one block at a time! Although my lines are not quite as square as hers, I am hooked! Have you been bitten by the “Quilt Bug”? if yes, please send me photo’s and I’ll share them here…we can have a Handmade Quilting Bee via the internet…
I can’t imagine a more wonderful gift than one that comes from the heart…
XOXO Ms. B!
I am linking up all over this week! I am compiling a list of my favorites – here are just a few ….
