From the very first patch she embroidered three years ago...to the finished product:
(Notice the pink blankie gracing her top pillow, that was a shower gift from a friend, it's 11 years old and still in perfect caressing condition, like only a blankie can be!
Our dear friend and Godmother to Sean-Paul helped us piece it all together (Ok, well she did most of it) and I finished sewing the binding on by hand this afternoon, while Violet worked on a new embroidery project involving a pillowcase and lots of pansies and sunflowers!!
It was wonderful working quietly together and listening to the last few chapters of Sign of the Beaver on CD while Sean-Paul napped. She immediately wanted to throw off her comforter and place her new creation on her bed. At long last my sweet Violet has a homemade quilt all her own. One that she was inspired to create with a little mommy encouragement!!
What a wonderful day! May God bless you richly in whatever you endeavor to do!!
