rollie pollies and little boys...

I sat and watched my grandson discover pill bugs yesterday.  It was such a sweet moment in time as his pop-pop showed him how to make the little bug close up into a ball...how he coaxed him into putting his palm out to let the million little legs crawl across his hand...how he gently picked the rollie pollie back up when Andrew screamed and threw him to the ground...as he pried open his lttle hand so that he wouldn't squish the thing to death and as they placed the little bug safely on the ground...

Just a moment in time...gone too quickly...until the next one...


I made these two quilt blocks as a part of this challenge at Sew Many Ways.  Karen asked for donations of these two squares so that she can make a quilt for a friend that is going through a difficult season...



I can't think of a more wonderful way to express love than with a handmade quilt...



I tucked in this card for her to send out to her friend...I heard she loves cherries.

Thanks Karen for the reminder...It only takes a moment to touch a life...to send a hug...to offer encouragement.   

Blessings,
Patty
