It is Friday again and although I've missed a few I do have a finish to show
Sometimes there are stories to go with your quilts
I have written this post a couple of times for Friday but never quite finished as this little quilt has a sad story...it is the quilt that I finished straight after Mr One Wee Bird passed away a phrase I never thought I would be writing at the ripe old age of 42!!!
I certainly didn't think I would share such an awful," keeping it real" post, EVER!!! when I started this blog but I'm sharing because this crazy fabric, making,sewing habit and community that we are all part of is so kind and generous and welcoming.
This little mini was for my partner in the DQS14 swap and it quite literally saved me from losing my mind each night that I sat down and quilted it amid a SEA of tears
Every time I looked at this little group of bags to go with my quilt it gave me a sense of purpose that each night I had something to do and keep my hands busy
Mr OWB thought these bags were great and asked me to make one for his GoPro camera that he took surfing, fishing and diving with him.
I finished it and mailed it before the international deadline and am glad that it is not living in my house but has gone to live with someone who loves it as I'm sure it would break my heart to have to look at it everyday..... and she has sent me the most lovely words on it's story.
It makes you think about all the stories behind the quilts that you see...some may not have any ,but I bet ALOT do
