Making Memories

Thank you to each of you who were so kind in your comments about the passing of my father. Your caring and prayers meant so much to me. We said goodbye to Daddy at the funeral on Saturday and spent time with family.

After a difficult weekend, my younger daughter, Maggie, and I spent a wonderful Monday together. She is our scientist with a master's degree in meteorology and a talent for all kinds of needlework. These doilies she crocheted were part of my birthday gift this year and I treasure them!

Yesteday's project was to get a quilt she had pieced ready for quilting. This is her first quilt project and she did a great job with all the fussy cutting and matching!

We pinned the quilt sandwich and she decided on hand quilting. Here she is working on the first block. And here's how the quilting pattern looks on the back.

She knows the hand quilting will be slow but also a nice way to relax after work and while planning her wedding in July! Can you tell I'm a very proud momma!!!! Now I need to get busy and get my own quilt projects underway again!

Such a sad time for you and your family. I will keep you all in my prayers.

I'm sure you are very proud of your daughter. Her quilt and hand quilting are beautiful! I jsut love her doilies too.
