Many of you know, my grandma died in January.
Our family helped with the cleaning of her apartment.
This was not much fun. It bought back a lot of memories and made me feel so sad inside. Yet, God had a surprise for me.
I gave her this pattern as a gift for her birthday in late August.
As we cleaned her sewing area, there is was on top, all done and waiting for me to see. My grandma loved to embroider. She was very talented at it.
It was a special surprise.
"Of course, countless numbers of things can be bought in stores, but somehow, store bought presents do not always convey the warmth we hope will accompany the gifts. When people take the time and care to make the presents they give, they put into the gifts not only the materials needed, but also a part of themselves."
