FABULOUS LADY, FABULOUS TALENT

You know it is not often that we meet someone and just automatically say WOW!! That person is awesome. Well....the Lady I am talking about today is totally awesome.

She designed this quilt....and well, she doesn't think anyone would be interested in her patterns. I am saying....oh yes they would...so what do you think?



She has done all this work by hand....amazing.




Then she gave this as a gift for my husband and I, wouldn't you just love to whip up something like this? So Adorable!!




Not only is she so talented (she has other things in the works) but I have never heard one ill thing come out of her mouth. Always the kindest things to say.

Her and her husband are originally from Utah, they are here in Amerika Samoa on an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They are quite a young couple, they left business and family and when they return home, back to work they go. What an inspiring lady and I am fortunate to be here and to have rubbed shoulders with her.

So what say ye? Should she make patterns for these? I say yes....notice that each flower and petal are different?

Yes, yes, yes! I love the flowers in their pots and can very much see either my mom or I taking that on (or both)! If that's her start, tell her to keep desigining. I see a promising future.

Love the flower pattern! and her stitching is wonderful. I'd definitely buy that pattern, so many possibilities with those flowers :)
And that turtle, how cute is that!!

Pat said...

If that quilt is typical of her patterns and her hand-work, then she should give a try at selling patterns, because she is very good!

Indeed she should! Lovely! Barb encourage her to continue!

Tell her "Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!" And I wouldn't mind one for that cute piece she made for you, either!
