In 2005 I lost my one and only quilting buddy to cancer shortly after she asked me to handquilt her best quilt ever. For a long time the sight of her last quilt overwhelmed me with grief.
Ironically, losing Tria propelled me to new adventures in quilting. I discovered that quilting helped me process my grief. Finding a position at Glad Creations surrounded me with many passionate quilters who are now my friends.
I can finally work on Tria's quilt with true joy. Here's my friend, Amy, helping me with the hard work of thread-basting while other quilting buddies stopped by to admire Tria's quilt. Isn't it beautiful?
I'm a lucky gal. My life is full. It's true that time is a healer. So much more so are friends and quilting. Working on Tria's quilt now feels like a celebration.
I can't wait to start stitching!
