I'm going on a trip next week which includes some air travel time
... and not much in the mood for a knitting project ...
so I'm bringing along some hand sewing
in the form of quilt squares
it will be a quilt for my oldest daughter
I'm feeling much the same way I did just before she was born
you see, she's grown up so much in the last few months
she's virtually changing before my eyes
I just want to wrap her up in love and comfort
stitches of thoughts and prayers and hopes and love
quilting a metaphor of shelter and protection
I made quilts for all my girls before they were born
... I can see myself making them all quilts before they go into Junior High ...
and about my trip next week
I'm an Island girl at heart
I'll come back with loads of pictures
this trip is a gift from the Sweet Husband for my 50th birthday
where am I going?
.... aaaaaaah ....
I'm hoping to swim with the turtles
and - I will be unplugged - so enjoy next week's tea with me!
