A Family Affair

on June 1, 2015

DSC_0489There is the sweetest family who is very dear to my heart.  They really know the meaning of love, among themselves and for the people around them. Their purpose is to love people with God’s love in order to glorify Him.  I am a recipient of that amazing love.

When great-grandma had to move out of her home to receive care, the family gave me her vintage fabric stash.  Was that generous, or what! As a token of my returning love for them I wanted to make each of the children a quilt and use some of great-grandma’s fabric in them.  So I asked each one what his/her favorite colors were.

Number 1 son said brown and green – no surprise; he had started hunting with his dad and was all about camo.

Number 1 daughter said the rainbow, all colors.  Mm-hmm, yes!

Number 2 daughter said pink and purple – she loved to wear pink and purple.

Number 2 son actually came along after the project started and didn’t have any say in the matter. But I think it’s ok with him.
