Homemade Comforts

Ring.....Ring........Ring........Grandma calling.........come on over......I am just taking bread out of the oven. We ran right over to enjoy this homemade comfort.

Our Grandma is 89 and still bakes her own bread twice a week. Her bread is just as beautiful as she is.

Everything is better when it is made by hand, especially bread hot out of the oven.

Quilts are also better when they are made by hand. And like Grandma's bread, this one is being given away.

I am taking this quilt to my sister today to celebrate her birthday. It brings me joy to make her a homemade quilt, just like it brings Grandma joy baking her bread for us.

The label reads: Flowers For My Sissy. A sister is dear to you always, for she is someone who is always a part of all the favorite memories that you keep close to your heart. Made with Love for my Big Sister Tinker. Hugs & Kisses, LuAnn "Sisters are the creamer in your coffee" 2009

Flowers For My Sissy.........will bring my sister homemade comfort each time she wraps up in it. It will warm her just like Grandma's bread coming out of the oven.

This is the back side of "Flowers For My Sissy". A scrappy backing on a quilt also gives me that cozy homemade comfortable feeling.
