    Pictures of some of my first completed quilt tops and one completed quilt. I am still working on my very first quilt - which is a king size made of 6" blocks that I embroideried with my embroidery machine - I'll post a picture of that next time I take it out. I'm still struggling with squaring up and doing borders and binding ~ but I'm having lots of fun!!! I do forensic interviews of kids who have been sexually or physically abused and this is my way of clearing my head of some pretty horrific images somedays. I tried knitting but I didn't need to concentrate so my mind would still conjure up the images - when I quilt I have to concentrate.

    Very Pretty,And lots of Kudos for your choosen career. I would either be sitting in tears, or committ serious harm to somebody.I personally can't stand any harm to a child. When I hear about some of the horrific things that come across the news, I actually get physically sick to my stomach. There are NO excuses. NO exceptions. I deal daily with Special need children, We had one little girl, whos brain was so damaged as a baby, from the result of the Baby Shaking Syndrome, that she was in a wheel chair. She was so pretty and soo sweet, I cried about that one. So go get them, put them away and please lose the key.

    They are all so pretty! My favorite has to be the Sage Gossamer Petals quilt, though, if I HAD to choose one.

    Like the others, THANK YOU for the job you do! It must be comforting to the children to have someone to talk to about the horrors who will believe them.

    I hear you ~ there are days that I struggle not to break out in tears and so many many days that I simply want to reach out and hold them close, especially the little ones but I am not allowed to touch or hold, or even show any emotion. What it teaches me every day, though is the true meaning of unconditional love because no matter what has been done to them ~ they still love their offender, usually a parent and want to go home. It makes it all the more special each time I spend time with my children and each time I hold one of my grandchildren. Of course I've gotten a little parnoid and I run a background check on anyone who might spend time with my grandkids! :-)
