In honor of Ed and Neva Anderson, and other stroke
While I was cutting and piecing the quilt top for the hospice
quilt project, many times I would get frustrated with the pattern instructions
and the many separate pieces. At times I even wondered if I wanted to continue
with this project. Then I would think of my dear friends, Ed and Neva Anderson.
suffered a debilitating stroke in the spring of 2001. The stroke left him with
some paralysis, and other maladies. Many months of rehabilitation required them
to be away from their home for extended periods. In my frustrations I would remind
myself how thankful I was to be in my own home doing what I love to do best, and
that is to quilt. Ed and Neva have now returned to their home and continue with
the rehabilitation. They are enjoying life together in their beautiful home, which
is a bed and breakfast.
I consider it an honor and privilege to have
been asked to be associated with this endeavor. I thank God for giving me the
gift of quilting, so I could be a part of this project for Meadowlark Hospice.
