    quilting hands

    I keep an album of the things I have quilted and wanted a picture for the front. While I was working on the binding of a quilt for one of my granddaughters I looked down at my hands, Called my son to bring the camera. Took 3 tries to get what I wanted under the light of my lamp. What do you think?

    I think that photo is a great idea for the front of your album. I also think a small insert of your happy smiling face in the top left corner would be even better.

    Isn't this what it's all about lady? To be covered in the warmth of the quilt that you pieced and (literally) bound with love. This is my favorite parts of the whole process. Sitting, sharing time with family, maybe watching funny videos on tv, chatting with loved ones, while finishing up a project that's taken weeks/months, while being warmed by that same project.

    A picture is worth a 1000 words. Love it. Keep up the good work lady!
    Go forth and sew!

    The picture is perfect for the front of your photo album which is filled with beautiful quilts you have made. Someone on the board said it best "a picture speaks a thousand words" and this one definitely tells a story. Great job!

    What a great picture! Your kids should all have a copy of that photo. Remember that old song, "Daddy's Hands"? Mama's hands have a lot of memories too.

    I love that song, what a sweet thought-maybe someone should write THAT song too.
