Main Advent Gift

Posted by PicasaI have been very remiss (lazy) in posting my main Advent gift from the lovely Wendy
I received four of these lovely place mats
Also chocolate but that has long since gone
She chose perfect colours for me
This was a wonderful swap and I would like to say a big Thank you to Wendy for being my swap partner and a special thanks to my dear friend Fee for paling me up with Wendy
I sincerely hope Wendy and I will continue our friendship
On the sewing front. not much is happening
I have been busy with the bathroom I have been Estapoling Layer after Layer
It will be worth it
This past week My Son in Law and I have had the unenviable task of sorting Lorraine's things
Her first anniversary was Dec 29th
The family rallied around us and we went out to lunch for a celebration of her life
I have decided that when Iam ready I will make a Memory Quilt from some of her Clothing
It will keep her close


  1. You did recieved beautiful gifts from Wendy. It was a great swap.
    My heart goes out to you and your SIL Illene. I think a memory quilt will be wonderful.

  2. How wonderful to make a quilt from some of Lorraine's things. I just lost a friend of mine on December 28. She was only 36.

  3. I am sure that specific quilt when made will last for ever. My thoughts go to you,and the hard things you go through.
    Wishing you a good 2012 year;glad you were my swap friend:-)

  4. A memory quilt is a lovely idea. Sending you big Hugs xx Fee xx

  6. Lovely presents for you from Wendy. I think it's the same Wendy that made my SSCS present :)

  7. What a wonderful idea to make a quilt of your daughter's things. A lovely reminder to wrap yourself in. It's hard to get going at the beginning of the year. I haven't done much sewing yet but have made a start by making a To Do list. Wonder how long it will take me to get to the end. Hugs for now.
