Less than a year ago, my very, very close friend, BJ, was diagnosed with cancer. It rocked my spirit to the core. It has been quite a journey through radical medical treatments, and yet the journey continues. I have retreated to prayer, meditation, and simply letting her know that I value her presence in my life. She has one of the most beautiful hearts ever. Always bearing her burdens, without complaint. I am so grateful and honoured that she has invited me to support her throughout this journey. I love her. And each day, I continue to pray for her. Won't you please join me?
BJ learned that she was going to be a first-time great-grandmother shortly before her diagnosis. I immediately offered to make the baby's quilt. We were so excited as we jotted to the quilt shop on lunch breaks to choose fabrics and long-arm quilt designs. I would make the quilt top and she would complete the quilt by handsewing the binding. Always such a lovely touch and perfect way to have her play a part in making her first great-grandchild's heirloom quilt.
This weekend, through tears, I completed my part of this quilt project. It will now go out in the mail to her for completion. Hope it will bring her some good cheer.
*I want to send a special "thank you" to the beautiful Tracy of Pink Purl and my most awesome pen pal from the Gift of Jewels project, Julochka of Moments of Perfect Clarity for awakening the crafter in me. I laid her down for a nap when I picked up my camera. :)
