So are you all ready for this weeks show and tell from Winnie’s Memory Bear and Keepsake sewing studio?
Here we go:
Last week two beautiful Memory Quilts went home to have a surprise welcome by two special daughters. Mummy had ordered the quilts to be created from their Daddy’s clothing as he sadly left the family far too soon. So Mum carefully selected and sent an array of memorable clothing and discussed with me the order of importance in the fabrics and designs. The family had to wait nearly five months! It must have seemed like forever!
I loved creating their quilts, looking carefully at the intimate and memorable parts of each and every piece of clothing and then creating a design that suits their specific.
Well I included swimming trunks (which was a great source of amusement for one daughter) shirt collars, buttons and T shirt logos to name just a few.
I hear the news of their arrival and unwrapping, the phrase that made my heart sing was:
‘her face lit up when she opened the parcel’
One comforted family and one happy Winnie.
