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?
