#photoadayapril 4/25/2012 – Looking Down
not very mind blowing, but nevertheless Looking Down… hmm maybe i should go back and do Stairs too… is that cheating?
anyway… this is a photo looking down the stairs in my house and hanging there on the railing is a quilt, my mom made that for my grandma and when we lost my grandma last year, my aunt sent the quilt back home with me to california. i knew as i unpacked it that it would be living there on my railing. i see a slightly modified version of this view from my office as i work each day, and on even the worst day i can look at that quilt and it connects me to so many family members, even though they are all far away in one way or another. some day if i have a bad enough day, it could even come off that rail to be wrapped around me, but so far just the thought of those hugs are enough. i don’t really have a lot of bad days 🙂
it is an extra bonus that the quilt is purple and teal. those are my favorite colors and the quilt my mom and i made for me as my first foray into quilting is also purple and teal. and as a parting thought, a picture of my grandma with her quilt, i love that face 🙂
