Labor of Love completed

Wow! I haven't written in my blog in quite some time. So sorry for anyone who faithfully follows it and has been waiting and waiting for me to finally write something. . . It isn't that I don't want to write; it's more like hard things have been going on, and I'm trying to cope as best I can. However, I've had several experiences recently that I'd like to write about, so this may be a collection of posts rather than just one.

Remember how several weeks ago I wrote a post about the love quilt we were putting together for my niece? If not, basically everyone in our family made a quilt square of their hand print with a special message and then my aunt took it back to one of her friends who is a talented quilter and put it all together. The result is beautiful. Here are some pictures so you can see for yourself what it looks like and how happy our beautiful girl was to receive it.

These are pictures of the hand prints people made. They are a good reflection of each person's personality, I think.

Here's our happy recipient. My sister told me that when she received the quilt she enjoyed looking at it, putting her hand on all the hand prints and saying, "They really love me."

Look at the beautiful stitching my aunt's friend did on the front and the back. Wow! Thanks to her for doing this for us.
