Saved by Love~a proper re~post of true friends....
Twenty two years ago a quilting friend gave me a gift that helped to "lift me up and over" a very hard time.
While our family was at church on Christmas Eve in 1989, little did we know that we were losing our home, our pets and everything but the clothes we were wearing to church that night, in a house fire.
My husband and I checked into a hotel that Christmas Eve with our three children, to begin the hard work of sorting out the details of our unexpected new life.
My dear friend came over with this quilt that she had just made and had hung on HER wall for the holidays. She took it down from her wall and brought it to us at the hotel.
She said she wanted our family to have a tree when we woke up Christmas morning.
I love my friend and I love this quilt and what it represents to me each time I bring it out for the holidays~ It has never hung on a wall because it is always wrapped around one of us~
As we all know, quilting is more than fabric and thread...
