VINTAGE CHARM



Across my bed
I drape
a vintage
handmade quilt
sewn with precision
and loving care
it keeps me warm
it keeps me safe
as if
still in the arms
of my grand-mother
as if
she were still here
with me with us

It's not as if. The love and energy she put in the quilt will always be in it with you

Such a beautiful tribute to your dear grand mother Line and to have the quilt so lovingly stitched by her own dear hands with such precious memories - wow that is so special. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, with kindest thoughts Ann xx

There is nothing like a beautiful quilt made by loving hands that are no longer here physically but here in all ways in the hug of that tender quilt they spent maybe a year making. Sweet write, Line.
