Yesterday, my friend Inge stopped by and gave me one of the most beautiful gifts ever: an oil painting she made of my Mother as a young girl. Is she not an amazing artist? God has blessed me when he gave me Inge as a friend, that’s for sure. My mother has always been an inspiration to me in all my sewing and home making. When she left this world to be with the Lord, I had lost my best friend and I still miss her. Inge thought I needed to have her with me in my sewing room. So, there she is on the wall, watching me digitize and sew. She would have LOVED an embroidery machine. She did so much embroidery by hand and all of her children (there are 5 of us) still have something handmade by her, reminding us of her love for us.
Thanks for letting me share my joy.
