I had the opportunity
to receive a lot of feedback from
the comfort quilts I make and gift others
in my community.
It warmed my heart.
a picture (or three) says a thousand words.
My broken young friend
is doing very well.
Just the other day, she had all pins, screws, and the brace
holding her spine, hips, and pelvis together
and walked, with aid, for the first time
in over a month.
Although she faces grueling and intensive PT now,
she's young, strong, and determined.
Her boyfriend of 3 years did not survive the accident,
but I know he is watching over her
and her memories of the love they shared
will guide her through
the next few months of her recovery.
this is what making quilts
is all about.
Again, many thanks to Natalia
for casting her magic spell
over this quilt
and making this possible for me.
