The quilt is a summary of my family. click here to see all the panels and meet my embroidered family.
Well, this is me, but you already know that.
Meet my Mum, Wil, who everyone at The Craft Group knows of course. She has been making and creating things her whole life. She has mastered knitting and crocheting and gives everything else a go as the opportunity arises with card making her main hobby at the moment.
My eldest sister loves the winter and lives near the mountains where they enjoy alpine living.
My younger sister fosters little children, so she is pictured here with a little one at her side.
Then came the time when I left the family of my birth to start my own family...
My husband Mark happens to be a VW man, amongst other things!
Annalee loves to play Oz Tag - a sport responsible for 2 knee reconstructions!
And playing the saxophone.
Jacob is learning to be a carpenter and has played soccer since he was 5.
Corey is our drummer. He gave an impressive solo performance the other day at school for his final music exam!
Heidi is our hugger! You can always get a hug and some encouragement from her any time of the day.
Then Jen found out and embroidered my wedding text. In our church community, an engaged couple can choose a text from the Bible for the minister to preach on. We decided this one was a good one to base our lives together on.
I had every intention to hang my new quilt on the wall for all to see but since I had my knee surgery 2 weeks ago, it has been so nice to use over my cold legs.
