It's been five years since my mom passed away, and I had wanted to make a quilt about her and me. I started to write in my journal on the day she hit her head and was in the hospital. Discussions about hospice care were fresh in my mind. It was the next step. My first entry was on Sunday, March 11, 2012. Same day, only in 2017, I started thinking about the quilt that I would make to honor my mom on that date. She passed away on March 21, 2012 and that was the day that I finished the quilt in 2017. 'Moments,' for learning how to live in the moment with my mom.
|We both had gray hair at the time of her passing. Two gray haired ladies...don't think so. I am making the quilt five years later and I have pink hair. Much better this way. How she was then with her smile and me now, making the quilt.

|Here's to you mom with all of my love!
