I love the words around the white border, it gave me the chance to say things to Sam that perhaps we forget in the humdrum of a busy life. She is 'smart', she is 'beautiful, she is a 'friend', she is a 'sister', 'daughter' and a 'granddaughter'. She is also 'tall', a 'young lady' and she is and always will be my 'blossom'.
I know she will love and treasure her quilt not least because it was made by 'her nana'.
I love my eldest granddaughter as much as I love the other 4 girls and 3 boys, they each have a little piece of my heart that they carry around with them, I don't know if they all know that yet, but one day as they get older, they will.
I know that this will be a long term project, but I just don't want it to take me five years to complete the top. I will only ever make one quilt with this much applique I think and I want to see it finished.
Having said that I also have a trillion other things that I want to do, right now I have to finish the Anniversary quilt, I need to make a bag for my SILs birthday (also Sept), I have to make the cake for Mum and Dad's anniversary party. Keep watching for that, I just ordered 60 sugar 'diamonds' for the top of the cake so I'm looking forward to making that. I have a Christmas quilt half finished which of course would be nice if I could actually FINISH that one for Christmas this year!! I still have to finish the Sunbonnet quilt and I have to start Caitlins quilt for her birthday in November!! Oh yes, and that doesn't include the BOM that I forgot about until it arrived at the Post Office!!! :0)
I thought about making a list on my sidebar with things I have to do, but then I decided that I would just get depressed if I didn't do them, this way it doesn't feel like I have to sew all week, just seven days, That's OK then, lol !!!!!
