About Me

My photo
Married 39 years, mother of 3 and grandmother of 5. I'm a seamstress and I've worked at a alteration shop for about 17 years. It's been real interesting working with women from 6 different nations. Jesus is the center of my live. He is my peace, my refudge, my beloved. My prayer is that the work of my hands, the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart are pleasing to Him.

This is Millie

Sadly, Millie passed away last year. She was the beloved companion of Mr & Mrs.See. I'm sure, like most dogs she was "Family"! Her passing left a void in their hearts.

The See's daughter, Dawn had seen my English Bull Dogs quilt and asked me to make a quilt of Millie as a Christmas gift for her parents.

As you can see, there's a difference between English Bull dogs & Millie....longer hair!!!!! This was a challenge, but I love a challenge. I try to make the quilts as realistic as possible. With a short haired dog, this really isn't that hard.
As you can see, I found what I was looking for.

A couple of weeks ago, I recieved a big hug and a "Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!" from Mrs. See. Funny thing is, she turned to walk away and then turned back and hugged me again amd repeated her "Thank You's" She told me that the quilt now hangs on the wall and that she enjoys having it.
