Six months ago, I became a grandma.
Lily brings us so much joy.
But mixed in was the sadness of missing my mom (who we lost to cancer 9 years ago) and the quilt that she would have made to welcome her.
Enter my friend, Becky. Becky did not know my hearts desire to give Lily a quilt, but she did know that I do not have a speck of quilting skill.
Out of the blue, she called me and asked, "Would you like to make a quilt with me for your grand baby?" My answer was, "If you mean, you do all the designing, cutting and sewing and I iron and fix you lunch ... YES."
So, Becky came and spent the night and brought
beautiful fabrics in my favorite colors
her sewing machine
her pretty hands and ALL HER SKILLS.
I cooked, ironed and did the really fun blanket stitch.
And here is the final product ...
My heart's desire... a beautiful quilt for Lily, designed and sewn in just a few hours, with the amazing skills of my friend, Becky. My adorable mom, Hallie would have loved this quilt. Lily loves it, too.
What skill do you have that you could share with a friend, that would make her heart dream come true?
