Sentimental Sunday #13

Welcome to another Sentimental Sunday,

I hope you have had a wonderful week.

Today I am going to be sentimental about something I have spent many hours with this week.

You see I have the F L U
eeekkk, I know
If you need to take a break and go wash your hands I will understand.
Since I have the -well you know
I have spent lots of time snuggled up
under my favorite quilt.


My grandmother (my Dad's mom) made this quilt for me.
I remember the day I got it,
we were sitting on the front porch of the old house down the hill (this makes sense to my family).
I remember looking at all the different fabrics and how soft the cream flannel back was.


Today there are seams that have come undone from years of use and they need to be restitched.
Last year my grandmother taught my sister and I how to hand quilt, so I need to take the time and stitch those places.  I could take it to my grandmother and she would do it for me, but I kind of like the idea of my stitches mixed in with hers and maybe one day one of my girls will add their stitches also.


I still love looking at all the different fabrics and dreaming about what they were used for first.
I imagine that the sweet floral was a beautiful dress, I know I would love a dress made out of it.



And the polka-dot makes me smile


Did I mention how soft the back is,
it feels like a warm hug.


So what are you Sentimental about today?

sorry you are sick! I too have the FLU! Your quilt is so pretty and I love the idea of you mending it to add your touch to it. Feel better soon.

Boo to the flu!!! I hope you're on the mend. Your quilt is just beautiful. I love everything about it, especially the fun polka dots :) Thanks for finding the strength to host the link up while you feel so terrible. Get well soon!

No link-up for me today, my dear. But, you know I am feeling sentimental about my bracelet. I received it for mothers day last year, and received more charms for Christmas. Thank you so much for your prayer that it will be found.

I feel a little silly being so upset by this - thank you for your kind words.

Hope you are feeling better!

my grandmother(dad's mom) gave us a quilt for our wedding gift.....

when we used it for the first time to cover up during a movie, we realized the hard way that she had left many, many needles in it....OUCH.

...made it all the more special!
