Remember to never forget

Blessed are those who can give 
without remembering 
& take without forgetting 



In between the busy & hectic Summer days I started making this large patchwork wall hanging the other day.  [ I must admit I am not sure what to call it / what the proper name is for such a creation? ] 


It is 'the call' of the sewing machine, I suppose. That little finger that taps you on the shoulder, and reminds you that a wee bit of sewing is needed.


I am nearing my 100th post, and am thinking of giving this patchwork quilt away...

    I would say a 'fabric wall hanging' or like the lady above says 'Fabric Art'.

    I know its been a while since I have popped over but I just wanted to let you know I'm having a little art giveaway for my good friend on my blog if you would like to enter.
