l would like to thank you all for your kind words,
thoughts and prayers on the passing of my sister.
As l look through the messages, l see so many friends, who, 12 months ago,
l did not know, and now that list of names warms my heart. Thank you all so much.
l would like to share this poem with you all,
written by a friend, for Judy, and read at her funeral yesterday.
It was so very touching.
l know at times your inner strength was tested,
In so many ways.
We may not share our tomorrows,
but we can treasure our yesterdays.
When God holds your heart,
forever your heart he holds.
You were in a cocoon,
now the beautiful butterfly unfolds.
We will search our own inner strength,
as we stay here and mourn.
While from the cocoon to the butterfly,
your soul has been reborn.
A few weeks back you gave me a big hug,
then in your passing, l realized,
today is all we may have,
then knowing how important it is
for everyone to share their love.
There are no telephones to heaven,
but a prayer will do,
and each time l see a butterfly,
l will be thinking of you.
And now back to quilting!!
Back in August l shared this photo with you.
Now l can show you the whole quilt.
Because it's finally been published.
My contributors copy of the magazine came in the mail today.
Australian Country Craft. Vol 22 No 6.
l named it Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows.
It will be for sale from the 22nd Dec.
Thanks for visiting and your friendship.
