Sharon left this life on the weekend, a dear and special friend, a lovely lady who will be sorely missed from our Colorado quilt group. I am shocked and grieved, the photo was taken at Spring retreat, Sharon was always so full of life.
Claudia, another live- wire and dear CO. quilt friend. Claudia is in intensive care in Grand Junction with a hole in her aorta. If you are praying person she can use every prayer, the next week will be critical. I understand that her chances of recovery are not high, but I also know that prayer can result in a miracle.
It's odd that I would have a quilt from each of these ladies here with me-not the one above that I quilted and blogged about recently, it was for Claudia's granddaughter, but she had also asked me to quilt the one below.
It's hand embroidered with nursery rhyme characters, Claudia has worked on it for several years. She told me "no rush" on the quilting.
Sharon's last QOV
Sharon had made this quilt for a wounded warrior, even quilted it on her DSM. I made the label and she sewed it on and gave it to me a couple of weeks ago. I was waiting until I had finished a couple more QOV's to mail them all off together.
I will include a note with this one to let the recipient know it was Sharon's last quilt for QOV.
Another quilter friend Andee over at "A modern Diary" Blogspot, lost her well loved Grandma over the weekend- the world is a poorer place for us this week.
