Tacoma Winter 18" x 24" 2012



When I made this quilt a few months ago, I think I knew what was coming.  On July 11 my son, at the tender age of thirty, lost his battle with cancer.  I have nothing philosophical to say about this heartbreaking loss.  It is 95 warm degrees outside, but in my heart it's winter.

  9. I picture you sitting in that frosty rocker wishing you could rock Devin. I see you sitting on your deck, in the hot afternoon sun, sitting on your glider listening to Devin's tales of his day:) So many memories and you capture them so beautifully. Miss that little boy, miss the strong man he became. My arms around you Sara.
