I made it in my early twenties before I got married.
It's beautifully stitched (even through I say it myself)
my mum taught me well!
Yesterday I was thinking about a dear friend
and suddenly I realised that I had made a quilt for her years ago.
It's the second quilt I ever made and it never seemed to have a home to go to.
But now it just needs a make-over to get it ready for its new home.
It has horrible batting and a ruffled edge which is pretty dated.
I took it apart this afternoon and I'm going to put a new backing and batting,
hand quilt it gently and then use the ruffle to bind it.
As I took it apart this afternoon, I thought about my 23 year old self.
My world was so small then, I would have never been able to imagine
how much bigger my world would get one day.
Look at this ruffle that I hand sewed on!
I had a lot of time then. I can't wait to fix up this project
and send it on it's way to a new home.
