This small quilt has been a labor of love on a couple of levels.
The idea of making a quilt in memory of my young grand-niece who passed away very suddenly at the end of January sat on my heart for a while before I came upon Sarah Craig's website and her annual Hands2Help quilting project. When I looked at the charities that she was sponsoring this year, I knew immediately that making a quilt for a little girl who may find herself in a radically different world from her familiar one would be a perfect way to honor our Angela. Because You Matter may be a Canadian charity and I may be an American citizen, but love is love no matter the time or place.
The 2015 Hands2Help project is coming to an end, but I'm still linking to the original description of the project that I found. Perhaps someone reading this will be intrigued and put Sarah's website on their favorites list so that they can be involved in the 2016 Hands2Help project ... because love is love is love no matter the time or place.
So here is the finished project. I'll be having my pastor say a blessing over it tomorrow and then it will be lovingly wrapped and posted to Nina so she can pass it on to some little girl who needs some sunshine and blue skies.
Thanks Sarah for being in the right place on my computer at just the right time. Hands2Help has been as much a healing project for me as it's been a work of charity for others. I can only chalk up happening onto your site as a work of grace from above.
Now, I think I'll go out and do some gardening with my little friend, Little Bee !!! Happy Saturday !!!
