Still Stitching


I dearly wish that at 87

I'll still be happiest when stitching...

taking care of Dad is a full time job

she doesn't get nearly enough time

to sit and enjoy herself
but nothing brings a smile to her face

faster than seeing me pull a new

quilt magazine or some fabric out of my tote...

with the latest quilt for me

pressed and ready to be quilted

she's been sewing 4" squares together

something simple and mindless

busy hands, happy heart

Your mom is a beauty and wow she doesn't look her age. I'm sure she does love seeing those treasures of quilting goodies....I hope at 87 I'm still enjoying handwork.
