For the last two days I have had the flu, as I wrap up in my afghan that my dear friend crocheted for me last year, I sat and remembered what time and effort my friend took in making it ...Ireminded me of this sweet story about a Christmas Quilt that I forgot to post in December. Most of you know that I work at a Quilt Shop. I have worked there for over 4 years now and absolutely love my job. I love the ladies that I work with, I love quilters attitude of " there aren't any mistakes in making quilts, you are still learning and that just makes your quilt unique" How I wish a lot of people had that mind set in many other areas of life. But the things that continue to amaze me with these ladies and many of my friends also is...the love, time and effort they put into their gifts to others. Each present I opened this year from family and friends, was a sweet reminder of their love for me. What a treat.
