    quilt I made for RN at hospice

    There is a dear RN at the hospice I volunteer that needs a lift. A few months ago her husband of 27 years came home and told her he didn't love her anymore and wanted a divorce. She was shocked and truly heart broken. She didn't think anything was wrong with her marriage.

    Last week she moved into her new home with her dog. Their house was sold after 27 years. double heartache. Her daughters are in college out of state so its just her and her dog. Of course the girls will be home for christmas but still she's so depressed. her divorce is know final.

    Thought I would share a picture of the quilt. I 'm including a card that says: When you are feeling low and need a hug, wrap the quilt tightly around you. Close your eyes and imagine all your many friends are there hugging you. love and prayers Debbie

    What a sad story! Hope you got her a voodoo doll too. Seriously, it's a lovely quilt and you're a thoughtful friend.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Beautiful quilt and beautiful gesture. She will treasure this.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    What a sweet, wonderful thing to do for this special lady. The quilt is a real beauty. You did a beautiful job. It takes a very special person to work in Hospice. You have to care deeply for folks and it must take a personal toll on you. This is going to be one of the most special gifts she'll ever receive. Well done on so many levels Debbie!
