Labor of Love




Practice makes perfect. So I met a new woman at church. Her name is Susan and she is wonderful. She made the decision to be baptized and asked if I would say the closing prayer at her baptism. She is a gem, really. So I decided that I would practice my quilting skills out on her and make her a little quilt. Picked fabric, washed it (Jenn would be so proud), ironed it, planned it, cut it, sewed it, blocked it, tied it, bound it. Ugh. Sewing is so laborious. It was a two day project. That is a little long for me to be working on something, but I think that it turned out so nice. I traced and embroidered my signature "K" on there too....you like? Her baptism was today and I gave it to her. She swooned and I felt good about doing something nice for someone else...isn't that what life is all about? Good things.

You really are amazing. Can I hire you to cook and sew for me? I guess it would be a bit of a commute for you. What a beautiful gift and I'm sure she loved it!
