Last night I experienced the true wonder of friendship and quilts.
In a cozy, candle lit home, almost 30 of us gathered to welcome friends
just returning from Ethiopia with their beautiful 15 month old adopted daughter.
We had been asked in January to each make a block for a quilt
to give in celebration of this wondrous occasion.
It was so awesome to be part of this. Everyone coming together,
the blend of all our personalities, the bonding......and then
to experience the true delight from this little girl seeing the quilt
is almost beyond words for me.
She was totally taken in by it, exploring it with all her senses,
hands touching and spirit shining.
I will no longer wonder if all our efforts
of creating from our hearts make a difference.
Simply put, they just do.
Here is one more picture from the kitchen we've been putting together.
Granite is in, fixture is hung, we are waiting for the knobs, but
the faucet is in, as well as the tile backsplash, artwork is hung and they are moving in.
I will have completed pictures soon.
Enjoy your day!
I'm off to celebrate a snow day by roasting a chicken and starting
an Amy Butler Cosmo bag.
I'll let you know how it all turns out tomorrow.
