A choice

From the life-changing magic of tidying up: "Does this spark joy?"


For the new Land of Flood and Drought the answer was "no."

But five grandkid quilts?


Yes!

Oh, what fun.

Do you already have an idea which five quilts you'll make?

Well, as Saskia commented recently, Remember 2016 started with a single patch of cloth. So too will the new Remember quilts begin with these five patches, one for each grandchild.

Exactly Mo ... I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I'm gonna try

Five quilts in ONE year? Good golly!

Hazel - Crazy, right? Not full size, though. Probably more like 30x60

I'm looking forward to seeing the quilts come together. I know it will be fun. (By the way, for whatever it's worth, I'm the same Stephanie who has commented from time to time, but Google no longer "recognizes" me.)

Liz Ackert said...

Well thanks and I'll recognize you even if Google doesn't ;)

Awesome project. These will be life long treasures to pass down for each of the recipients. And, I know, each will be filled with stitches of LOVE!

Thanks for the encouragement, Sue ... right now I'm frozen like a deer in the headlights, but I'm hoping to get a move on soon.
