    Or the quilt will remind her of her wonderful friend who was there during the rough time with her and made it easier. The quilt is just stunning..

    I stayed with a friend for a week, and this was my hostess gift. Normally we have a blast, but her mother had a stroke on the second day while I was there, so we spent a lot of time at the hospital. (At 96, the mom is now doing well in rehab.) I hope the quilt doesn't just remind her of this bad time.
    The quilt will be a wonderful comfort to her. How lovely. I totally believe in giving a hostess gift when you stay with someone. Your lil feet look cute. Did you just have a pedi?

    Wonderful quilt. I'm sure it will be very special to her regardless of exactly which memory it holds. Even if it reminds her of her Mom, she will remember you being there with her. Glad to hear her Mom is doing well at 96!!!
