The host of our Elimination Club pulled the March number, and here it is - Dear Emma. My friend, Sally, and I are making this one together for her beautiful granddaughter. Sally is making the pieced blocks and I'm making the appliqued ones. The first appliqued block was made the day Emma was born. She's now two. Our goal is to have this finished before she graduates high school! Yeah, we can do that!!! (The third row is not assembled in this picture.) I'm going to finish the fourth row of the applique and also do the fifth row this month.
I can't believe it's already March! I sure wish I had started quilting 20 years ago. There's no way to make all the quilts I want to make. Guess they'll all be going to The Home with me!!
My happy thought today is realizing that I'm happy! Quite an accomplishment considering all I've been through in the last ten years. I've been wallowing in the past a lot lately, as evidenced in my blogs, but that's over now. I always get that way this time of year. While it's important to remember my past and where I've come from and been, it's more important to move forward - with the knowledge that each day here on earth is another opportunity I've been given to get it right!
