A Wonderful Birthday Gift





My Mother learned to quilt over the past few years. She really knocked my socks off with this gift. I will try to take a better pic.






She embroidered, used a twin needle and gathered borders. She quilted it herself. I am SOOOO proud of my Momma and she asked that I hang it over my bed in my apartment. Her wish will soon be granted.

Give your momma a hug from a fellow quilter and tell her "She did GOOD".

dear suzette, so sorry to hear of all your burdens; you surely must be special to God for Him to ask you to take on so much. I wish I could relieve you of them but this is how life is sometimes. I pray for strength for you, wisdom, serenity, peace...
