Made With Love

Again I'm blown away by the generosity of my friends! Last night under the guise of a craft night I was presented with an amazing quilt made by the craft ladies while we were in Ethiopia picking up Mezmur. Each lady made a 12/6" quilt piece and it was put together to make a beautiful quilt for Mezmur. They didn't come up with a color scheme or style to follow, but when all the pieces were put together...the final result, a perfect quilt for Mezmur to grow up with. The colors and style of each quilt piece go beautifully together. I was surprised and brought to tears...feeling a little like, "Why do I deserve this?" Also feeling like, "I have some of the greatest friends ever...I'm very lucky."



Thank you crafty ladies...Mezmur loves her quilt. As you can clearly see.

Thank you Caroline, Daria, Liselle, Lori, Lupine, Monica, Myndi, Talia, Tess, and Tracey! You are all the best. You sure know how to make a girl feel very loved.

I can totally understand her explanation of the love of the quilt. You can see it in her gestures and the whole facial expression thing. She's a genius!

I love the quilt .... how very special of a gift. Mezmur looks just as cute and happy as she can be. Glad to hear an update from you. How's Rhett doing and how is he adjusting to his new little sister?
Take care,

"Made With Love". . . does say it all and for the deserving part, the smiles on that little angel's face speaks volumes, as does all you do. . . It doesn't go unnoticed. You are Blessed with wonder friends and there is only one way down that road and that is with an open heart. . .
