Sew Much More

A project from the past

Filed under: crafty gifts — by michellew @ 2:21 pm

I lost my grandmother this past October and its still hard to accept that she’s really gone.  After her passing, my grandfather left his house of 62 years, and moved to Georgia to live with my aunt and uncle.  I didn’t get the opportunity to walk through his house after he moved, but some of my family did and they found this pillow I made for Grampy and Alice’s wedding present.  I made it my senior year of highschool.  I just cried and cried seeing it again.  Its strange when you make a gift filled with so much love for those you give it to, and then receive it back.  Alice’s passing hits me hard all over again.  The ache is difficult and deep.  I wonder sometimes if she knew just how much I really love her.   I hope she did.

  1. How very special – certainly something to always treasure and pass onto little Alice.

  2. It’s amazing how important little things left behind by loved ones become to us. What a special reminder of your grandmother. Prayers are with you as you continue to miss her.

  4. My wife and i have been now lucky when Emmanuel managed to do his research by way of the ideas he obtained from your very own web page. It’s not at all simplistic just to always be handing out methods that many people could have been making money from. And we all recognize we have the writer to appreciate because of that. Those explanations you made, the easy blog navigation, the friendships you can give support to foster – it’s all exceptional, and it’s facilitating our son in addition to us feel that the article is thrilling, and that’s pretty pressing. Thank you for all!
