Oh! How I Cherish my Quilts

I absolutely love sitting in my favorite chair curled under my special quilt after a long and tiring day. These days with all the angst and uneasiness around the CORONA (COVID-19) Virus, I find myself curled under my quilt more often. The quilt seems to calm me down and allows me to relax for a bit. I remember when I gifted a quilt to one of my nephews when he was just a toddler. He was so cute with the quilt. He would lay the quilt on the floor all nice and neat, lay his head on it and then get back up, fold he quilt up nice and neat and tuck under his arm as he went along his business. A quilt has that special ability to put a smile on your face and make the world all better even if just for a little while. I have seen my customers well up with tears as they receive their memory quilts with the bits and pieces of their loved ones lives woven throughout their quilt and I know they cherish their quilt and bask in the wonderful memories they evoke.

Praying everyone stays safe and healthy during this period of crisis. Enjoy your times at home with your family and make it into something extra special for your children. It is not often they get their parents home 24/7 for an extended length of time. Look for the silver lining, do what you can to be safe and keep your sanity, snuggle on the couch with your kids and loved ones under a quilt and may God Bless everyone.
