Today is a sad day for me! A dear friend of mine "slipped the bonds of earth to touch the face of the creator"! Adapted from a poem by John Gillespie Magee, Jr., from the Royal Canadian Air Force WWII.
Two weeks ago, I was given the personal task of finishing her first quilt, which she made in 2006; I was to machine quilt it and bind it. It was the only quilt she wanted to keep for herself. It was my desire to complete the task in time for her to enjoy before her passing. It was an honour to be asked to do this and what a pleasure it was to be able to lay it on her while she was able to enjoy her creation. I love you Cheryl. Thank you for being a dear friend!
Goodbye my friend, you will be sadly missed! See you on the other side! ;o)
