    joy of giving

    Here's my grandson with his teacher and aide and the quilts I made for them. The top of the little white head you can see is my mother. She's so proud of my "work". She made sure she was there when the quilts were given so she could get a picture. Grandson goes to a Christian school associated with the church my mother attends. She volunteers in the food pantry once a week and got one of the other volunteers to go with her to take the pictures. I love it!

    Those are wonderful presents for his teacher and her aid. I am sure they both felt humbled by such a wonderful gift. Your Momma has a very good reason to be proud of you, dear!

    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    It is wonderful. What a great setting for that joyful panel. That is a darling young man in the photo. He must be a great joy.

    Just found out from my daughter today that the pre-school teacher in the first photo has retired. This was her last class after many years of teaching. I'm SOOOO glad I made that for her!
    So many quilts, so little time.

    your quilts are beautiful and the recipients look very pleased with them! It's wonderful when we get not only support from loved ones for our 'addicition' but out right pride in our creations!
