A Thank You Video From Granny

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE GIVE AWAY.......after you watch this sweet video of Granny talking to you (see below), go to my post titled- GRANNY BIRTHDAY QUILT GIVE AWAY. It is dated Tues Sept. 29th and closes Oct. 23rd.
Thank you to Michelle H. for buying 2 of Granny's Quilts. This is a picture of Granny when she was reading your sweet note. She was so thrilled! Your quilts will be on the way this week!
Also thank you to a special friend (like a daughter) Shannon C. for buying a quilt too. I hope you enjoy it. Also, another thank you to Kim M. for buying a quilt. You can pick one out on the sidebar and let me know which one you would like. I have numbered them to make it easier.
This Video is from Granny to all of you!

This is to all of you bloggers & friends who have bought or are thinking of buying a quilt from Granny. I asked her if she would like to thank everyone and she said yes. I am sorry that my southern voice is so loud but Granny doesn't hear well and I wanted her to tell you about some different things that we had already talked about. She is so blessed everytime I come in and tell her that I have sold a quilt. As you notice in the video she says something like she could not find "no buying"- that means she hasn't sold many quilts before all of you started buying and she is thanking everyone. I have talked her into making some baby quilts after she gets through with the next 2 big quilts. They are precious. I am adding her quilts that are for sale to my side bar. She has about 20 more that are already made up and I hope many more to come. Thank you for loving my Granny by buying her quilts. You have truly blessed her. I hope you enjoyed the video.

P.S. I have had many many emails about Granny's birthday. She will be 96 years old on Oct. 24. If you would like to send her a birthday card when it gets closer to that date- You can send it to:

Oh Val, My tears are flowing - Granny is just so precious, such a joy and a witness for the Lord. She reminds me so of mama and grandma. I will definitely send her a birthday card; thanks for the address.

This is the sweetest video!! I love it!! I received some good news from my mom (Valerie) today. I get to pick out a quilt from Granny as a gift from my mother. My children all have one but I don't have a quilt for myself. I am so excited!! I will have to hurry to Granny's to pick it out before they are all gone. Thanks to all of you that have purchased a quilt. Her reaction is priceless!! Shannon

Oh Valerie...your Granny is just a sweetheart. It is wonderful to get to know her. What an inspiration to all of your family! She is lovely.

I addressed the card already and now will hold it until October. Granny will probably be very surprised with receiving all of the cards.

Friends,

What a precious post, Val. This has just got to be so overwhelming for her,and she is just so gracious, and appreciative. What will she do when her big stack of quilts are gone. Will she fret? I hope not.

Thank you for sharing Granny with us again. You are a blessing to her. I bet you are in her prayers every day!

What a lovely video of Granny. She is just the sweetest thing. :-)
I can't wait to see the baby quilts. I'm certain they'll be just as comfy as her fuller quilts.

Needled Mom said...

I am the unfortunate one as my computer is telling me that the "video is unavailable at this time."

Granny is such a sweet woman.

Diane said...

Hi Valerie,
I am a friend of Kim Morris in Ohio. She turned me on to this site and it is awesome. I am interested in buying 2 quilts. My sister recently lost her husband in a motorcycle accident. He was early 50's, so I want one for her b/c I think it would make her feel special and give her some peace. Thanks!

Hello dear Valerie, if the red & white quilt (#6) hasn't been sold yet, that's the one I would love to buy from Granny:-) Just let me know how much it will come up to with shipping and I'll send you the payment right away! I so loved hearing Granny speaking on the video, what a true delight she is. Love both your accents:-) xoxo

Angie said...

I just love Granny too! She is so precious. Thank you for sharing her with us. How much does she charge for her quilts? Tell her we adore her and admire her love of the Lord. She is an inspiration to all.

We love the quilts and your posts about your Granny. Lauren already has a quilt picked and now Ashley has picked one. If no one has picked #4 Blue and Grey that's the one she wants. (2nd one down in the pictures) Love you!!!

You know, the best part about this video is the sweet laugh that Granny has when she talks about the Lord! I played it over and over just to hear that!

God bless you, sweet Granny. I'm looking for the Lord to come get me some day too. See you there. But if you get there before I do, please give my sweet husband a big kiss for me. He loves kisses from pretty ladies.

Grannies are Special. she reminds me so much of mine. She raised me and I thought the world of her. She also taught me to quilt. I Thank God for Grannies. I am sending Birthday card out today. Happy Birthday, Granny!

Granny is so precious. I can't stop the tears right now. Val, you are so blessed to still have her. she reminds me of my Granny and my Mom. Thank you for sharing...you have brought back many memories. I will get a card to her for her birthday, and hope she has many more. Hugs, Linda

Peg said...

Oh my goodness, what a wonderful lady, her gentle spirit brought tears to my eyes. She is so like my precious Gran who left us many years ago. I think everyone who is privilged to own one of Granny's quilts must be truly blessed as you are having her in your family. I would love to spend time with her, she is a very gracious lady who is not afraid to 'own' her Lord. May God bless you and your family for many years more of this wonderful lady. I am only sorry I live to many miles away to buy one of Granny's quilts.
Big gentle hugs to her

I was just surfing and find Granny. What a remarkable lady. Everything I saw on your blog made me want to find out more about her. I went back a ways and saw some of her simple but beautiful quilts. Her verse is also the one I try to live. I knew the verse (my mama would quote scripture) long before I knew where it was. It being 4:13 made it seem as though God was speaking to me as that is my birthday. This year has been one that I needed that little nugget of truth more than usual. I lost my eldest daughter, Amourina, 4/22/10, just a week before her 33rd birthday. Am sure she is with Jesus too. Amy had an old soul and most of her friends were 60+. She and Granny would have been friends here had they meet. They both didn't like wasting time and touched many more lives than they ever knew. Thank you for sharing your Granny with all of us out here in blogland.
