My ray of sunshine
She has an infectious laugh and a bright smile.
Always makes you feel good and so full of inspiration.
Aunt Julie is extremely talented in her painting...
Her creative use of teacups to make a couple of lamps...
And is totally a RED HAT SOCIETY sassy gal!!
But last year was very hard on her with the passing of her daughter.
She was so sad last summer and I was sooooo sad for her.
I felt like she had lost her mojo.
I asked her to show me what she had been working on and she showed me a box that had three crazy patch squares in it.
Aren't these the cutest little button flowers?
That was last summer.
This week I had a chance to go see her again and she is back.
She had so much she wanted to show me and I was excited to see it.
This time the box was full of crazy patches squares.
Each block is elaborately adorned with hand embroidery, charms and lace surrounding a photo of Aunt Julie.
