A Breathtaking Gift!!!

This gift was given to me by my wonderful friend Sharon! When she walked in with it it literally took my breath away and my hands began to tremble. It is a quilted mobile featuring 5 postcard sized, handmade, quilted pictures! It was designed and sewn by her friend Jana and is absolutely breathtaking!! Each picture is created from a variety of fabrics which have been sewn together to create 5 different Chinese scenes. Many scenes are brought to life using glitter thread and carefully placed quilt batting which gives each picture a 3 dimensional look and feel.

The mobile is beautifully displayed with a fan on top with the pictures carefully hung at a variety of lengths from chopsticks! I have never seen anything like it and I can’t wait to find the perfect place to display such a precious gift from the heart.

Jana is Sharon’s friend and the creator of this beautiful, unique piece of art. Quilting is one of the hobbies she has started since retiring. I'm so thankful she has!! Jana, if you happen to read this, Thank you! The mobile is absolutely beautiful! I hope to see you sometime when you're in town and tell you in person how beautiful this is!

And Sharon, what can I say? Thank you so much for this beautiful gift and for the daily prayers you offer for Hannah and I. I love you. You are a cherished and precious friend! Looking forward to the next couple of weeks away together. I didn't think this time last year we'd see another June Exam trip but I'm glad we have it! Have I mentioned that we're (that would be the Royal 'We') are good to book January too? LOL!!

  22. I don't usually do the comment thing on 'gift' items, but this is the exception! Totally unique! I can see why it took your breath away. Our wonderful friend, Nancy, made us a bed sized quilt with special significance to Be & myself as well as our daughter, Joanna. It is stunning!
    We continue to follow your story.....
