I have a dear friend. The one who’s mother, I’m making this for. Our lives are tightly woven together. We share a similar challenge, we both have a blood disorder. We often joke because she has the opposite problem I do. Where my blood often is unable to clot she suffers from blood clots. So we joke that we should mix our blood half and half and then we would be fine. Well she has had a bad go recently. Spent some time in the hospital with complications from this problem. Yesterday was her birthday, which she is celebrating when she feels better because she is mad that this has put a rain cloud on her day and she wants a happy day when she celebrates. But I made her this anyway.
I told her it was part of my treatment. I also made her a cute little dishcloth from Nanette’s tutorial. I used up the rest of my scrappy binding that I made here and put on a quilt I still need to show you. I’m hoping that these happy colors that bring me joy and healing when I sew with them, will bring joy and healing to her also.
