For Warmth and Comfort

The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.

Drum roll please . . .

At today's quilting class, the last of the season, I was able to unveil my first true* quilt. It's done!

* Baby quilts made with 'cheater' tops don't count in quilting circles.

And I am very happy with the result. I'm ecstatic, in fact.

My teacher congratulated me saying, "She's a quilter now."

I held my breath over the weekend. Through a (gentle) machine wash the stitching held fast. Ilhumdulila!
May it bring warmth and comfort for years to come.
