    OK here goes. going to try and post. hope photoes will come out.

    Following is a wall hanging which is all hand sewn and hand embroidered. The saying is something I have carried around in my head since I first read it when I was 17 years old. (a couple of decades ago!!)

    That has to be one of the most beautiful things I have seen. With the exception of my 2 daughters and 7 grand daughters, of course.

    The quilt is beautiful; the saying is wonderful. No wonder you heard its music for so long a time.
