Alice's Quilt

I made this quilt about a year or so ago for my sweet sister, Alice. 
She and I are best buds too; we both miss our dear sister, Paula.  Alice is the oldest and had lots of responsibilities while we were growing up.   I helped with the babies and she did house work --I am the number 2 child in the birth order.  Alice is always ready to go and do, she's a sweetie, and I love her dearly.  We go to Bible Study together on Tuesdays and just love it-- it really gets deep and I like that.  There are many, many riches in God's Word.  We've studied things that we have heard all our lives and we are continually astonished with more truths--amazing.

I made this quilt for her Birthday, and I named it "Georgia Pines"; they used to live there near her daughter.  Their beautiful home had a Grove of Pines in their huge front yard.  They were lined up in rows, and I loved to look at the trunks as you drove up their drive.  It was quite impressive. 

I took this picture in my home before I gave it to her for her birthday about a year ago.


This one was taken in our back yard.

Alice is getting ready to have another red headed grandbaby, maybe?.. Well, her daughter and son-in-law's  kids all have red hair so far --this will be number 4 and we will see.  I am getting ready to make her a baby quilt and I'm picking out colors that will look good with red hair, just in case.  So exciting!! I love babies.
