Today I spent the day with my two dear friends Amanda and Khris, sewing and grabbing those precious hours. Next week Khris and her family move back to Queensland, where they came from 4 years ago.
I have had the honour of knowing this wonderful family for 2 years now. This is where I go on a Sunday and we all sew up a storm.
What I wasn't expecting and overwhelmed to receive, was this beautiful quilt that I helped Khris make earlier this year.
Fabric used was "Spirit" by Moda and I just loved working with this fabric range.
Label and yes that is how my eyes read the label this morning. All blurry and trying not to cry as that would have had us both bawling.
I have been so blessed with Khris's "Spirit" and outlook on life. Khris taught me how to make a quilt when we as a group, worked on the quilts for the floods up in Queensland earlier this year.
Khris is a person I look up to, with this zest for life and her "spirit" in giving to others with her heart. I am so proud to call her my friend and I shall be counting down the days from when you leave and to when you come back in April of next year.
We have one more Sunday as a group in Khris's house this coming Sunday. I am wondering how I will cope with not having my Sunday sewing time. No interruptions and with us feeding each other with inspiration . I know that our little group will continue in friendship and sewing together as often as we can. Maybe we could do a link up with Khris one Sunday.....lol.
Better go and wash my eyes out as I can feel something in them and its making my eyes water.
