After a very busy weekend this afternoon found me relaxing by sitting down with my sewing machine to work on my latest project. There is a baby across the ocean who was born a few months ago and she needs a handmade gift from America to welcome her. Feeling a bit slow to complete this project, I hope to get it done before she heads off to college! No, really, I am almost done so it will soon be packaged up and taken to the post office. This day finds me grateful for this art form. Quilts comfort and encourage people by showing them that I love them, pray for and am thankful for their presence in my life. So I must push one more day to finalize this quilt and get it in the mail!
