I have a very sweet friend. She has been a friend of our family for over 20 years. Mrs. D. is a lively Southern belle who loves to bake goodies for my family. She will invite me over for lunch and we visit for the whole afternoon. Mrs. D's hubby died about 8 years ago, and it has been a lonely time for her. Her children and grandchildren live in different states, so it is hard for them to come very often.
A Couple of years ago I made this little quilt for her birthday.
It was a very easy pattern (Sticks and Stones) which made it quick and fun to put together.
Mrs. D loves to watch the Food Network and the Travel shows on cable. She tells me that she has traveled the world by watching these programs. And she loves the chefs that design new recipes. We often are the recipient of a new cake or cookie recipe that she has experimented with. She usually tells me she took a taste test and she did not think it was very good. When I bring the treat home, it is gone in no time flat. But that is her hobby now, especially since she had hip surgery a few years ago. It really limits her ability to walk very much. Her limited walking has not limited her heart. She can whip out a bowl of soup, a grilled cheese sandwich and a tall glass of sweet iced tea at the sound of the doorbell.
Here's my sweet friend...............
