Her monthly quilt group have a challenge to buy a fabric that can only be used as a border and the material in the blocks must compliment this border fabric. So stressed with worry, her choice is a steel grey with small blue flowers not her usual bright and cheerful colours.
Each month instructions are given to make blocks of varying sizes and styles. She finds this very difficult and cannot sew but the simplest of blocks. The quote 'One Day at a Time' is her mantra and it is engraved on a pendant she wears around her neck.
Finally, peace is found when she learns to accept 'what was', 'what is' and not live in the 'what if'.
May 2009 her son returns home and the quilt is finished and put away until...
this fall, when it is taken to a long arm quilter and finished.
I have named this quilt 'Acceptance'...
I have learned to accept what is, forgive and let go.
Tomorrow is Remember Day in Canada and I will take a minute of silence,
shed some tears again and remember
all those who did not return.
Thank you for visiting!!!
