She made this just for me.
She looked up and saw me but hadn't quite reached her goal of 20 squares on that first strip so she told me that she had to finish before we talked. I told her that I love to watch her sew. This will be the next quilt for sale. I went on Wednesday morning to see her and this was her second quilt this week. She just amazes me. The last quilt she made I sold it just from pictures like this before it was made. You will see it below & on my sidebar.
UPDATE: This quilt is sold before it is even finished to Linda
(another sweet blogging friend). I am so blessed!
She has already purchased & received 2 quilts and is buying this one and another.
Thank you for blessing Granny, Linda!
It amazes Granny that you all are buying her quilts. She says for years she only sold them at Christmas and there was always a stack in the quilt room and even then she didn't sell many. She told me yesterday when I took 4 and put up for some of you that it gives her HOPE and makes her want to get up and get started. I noticed when she got up she had a very hard time just walking a 2 or 3 feet to the sofa. It made me sad. I told her that she needs to get up and get her horse (as she calls the walker) and walk to the kitchen and back when she is sewing so she won't get so stiff. These are the last quilt squares that I cut for her and she sold this quilt to Heidi (a new friend)
before it was ever finished. The sheet that she used on the back of this was sent to her by Michelle. Michelle is another great friend of mine and I am blessed to call her my friend.
I was fixing to leave when my Uncle Joe and Aunt Carol came in. My aunt had some old pictures of Granny's school days. Granny actually stopped sewing to look at these pictures. Aunt Carols mom is also in these pictures. Granny recognized a few people. I loved watching her looking at these pictures. I asked my Aunt Carol to point out which one was Granny. The girl standing above her is my Aunt's Mom. I didn't ask Aunt Carol the year this was. I wish I had. I will next time I see her though.
Don't you love it?
I love it all!
Thank you Maggie!
I am so excited that Heidi is hosting a
FRIDAY NIGHT SEW IN!
