Aunt Norie’s Sewing Room
I can’t use her name — wish I could, but those who know her will know of whom we speak here. This has to be so very beautiful.
A certain big sister this past Christmas made for her tiny new baby sister the most special quilt.
Taking a square of fabric (large enough) she both drew and copied from coloring books animals, flying birds, butterflies, kittens, and puppies all over it with pathways, trees, bunny rabbits, squirrels, etc., embroidering them all such in beautiful colors. Her mom tells me: “She has really created an heirloom for her baby sister.”
That sounds so exciting, and you know she had such fun doing it. That we all know is a real treasure, so full of “love in every stitch.”
I’ve heard of so many homemade Christmases this past year that were so very great.
And isn’t that what Christmas is all about? Hearts full of love and thanksgiving.
God bless us all and this wonderful world he gave us. As we repeat the little 9-year-old daughter (Becky’s recent column) “Happy birthday, Jesus.”
Love you and God bless
