A sneak peak.....

Here is a sneak peak of the
Block of the Month program that I am working on.
It is called "Words to Live By".
There are 16 blocks that will be made over 12 months.
There is some simple piecing, hand embroidery
and machine (or hand) applique.

While I was working on the first block,
David's mom passed away after a long fight with cancer.
She was a very special lady.
She had a kind heart, was a wonderful cook,
and a wise woman when you needed advice.
She will be greatly missed.
I was sitting idol and couldn't stop thinking about her
so I created this small pillow that will be placed with her.
She had a very strong faith and I knew that
Psalms 23 would be just right.
It is stitched by hand and on the back it reads
"Always in our Hearts"


  1. the bom looks like it will be beautiful! Sorry about your family's loss.

  2. ahhh beautiful...seems stitching in quilting is all the rage now...beautifully crafted..

  3. Beautiful, in thought and deed Nancy. Thinking of you.
