    Default See what DH can do - It's worth a look!

    Jonas has been so sad about my brother Tommy's death. He's been a bit mopey, which is okay and expected. I suggested he try his hand at sewing. He picked a block with a lot of seams but I let him go with it. The picture is dark, sorry about that, but he chose mostly dark fabrics. And it lies perfectly flat. He'll be making three more and appliqueing something on it - who knows what at this point? He is brimming full with ideas. And he was so happy working on it. I tell you, quilting really is good for the soul.
