Remembering Margaret

Today is the 4th anniversary of my grandma's death. A day of reflection and graditude. And forgiveness. Margaret's Hope Chest would not exsist if there wasn't forgiveness. Mistakes were made at the time of her death-serious mistakes with life-altering consequences. But I have learned that with forgiveness also comes life-altering consequences.
Today is also the 2nd anniversary of MHC. Two years, 83 quilts, countless people touched. Man I love this job.....
My grandma grew beautiful peonies at one point in her life and so today my kids and I planted a peony bush in her honor and to help keep her memory alive.

Hello,

With your permission I'd like to add your blog to the blog page of my new quilting directory, Quilt Qua : http://www.quiltqua.com/links/blogs/ You can let me know if you'd like to be included. If you would like to be on the first alpha list, you simply need to let me know you've made mention, or placed a link on your site, back to Quilt Qua. I can send you a graphic if you'd like one for that purpose.

I try to check my lists, but if I've already contacted you, I'm sorry.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please note photos are always welcome on the Show and Tell page (right now there is a giveaway connected to the show and tell), and do let me know if I've missed your business to list on the web site!
