It's a Finish!!

This is the quilt I finally finished for Beth, with Beth holding it up. I had promised her a couple of years ago that I would make her a quilt and life got in the way. It was really perfect timing that I was finishing it up on Saturday and Beth and her Mom were due any minute at my house. I was still working on it when they arrived. I hid the back of it and we got to talking about quilts and I had to again hear the ribbing about the fact that I had made a quilt for everyone but her. I took her over to the cutting table and showed her the back of the quilt! I am not sure, but I think she was stunned. I had finally kept my word and made her a quilt. I am proud to say that I had a hand in raising this beautiful young woman. When she was younger and would get into mischief, she always knew she had 4 parents to deal with instead of the usual 2. We have loved her since she was a little girl and have enjoyed watching her grow to the wonderful woman she has become. A few month's ago, Beth learned that she had Sarcoma, needless to say we were all devastated. She had the surgery and the tumor was removed entirely intact, she was very fortunate and our prayers were answered. She has gone through quite a bit the last few month's, but I have faith in God that this was a lesson that had to be learned and that she will be able to soon continue with the life she had planned with her cutie patootie husband. We won't know until sometime in December if all the cancer is gone, but I have faith in god that it is. We are looking forward to "grandchildren" and we know that it will happen when it's meant to be.

I love my "girl" and I hope she enjoys her was made with lots of love and is meant to help surround her with love and the healing powers of the angels.
