Tender Moments

All Im doing thesedays is pattern writing, how I miss spending time behind my machine!!! But its all for a worthy cause, Tender Moments is nearing completion (and release):

Id really love to share with you the sentiments behind this design. Dinner time for us as a family, is a time for sharing the experiences of the day (some great, some not so great!!!). With both children at school you can imagine the chatter and the excitement........one dinner time, way back in November I just sat and watched my family. I cant remember the conversation, I was more focused on the family as a whole, the mannerisms, the closeness, the excitement in their eyes............ the Tender Moments that make you feel special, yet can go unnoticed........... so a design and a quilt was born!!

I chose to mirror the sentiments of this quilt with my love of nature.....how often we see things without actually noticing them.........a spider in its web, a bee looking for the flowers etc etc and also my absolutley favorite blocks (except the Log Cabin....it just didnt work!!!)

Tender Moments is dedicated to my husband Les.....there has not been a day in our 23 years together that myself or our children havent felt special and loved!!! That day, way back in November I stopped and appreciated the family bond we have.......this is for you baby!!!

So this is where you will find me for the next few days.........notice the big bowl of Chocolate Eclairs beside the coffee??? How else can I get through the pattern writing???? Lol

Very nice pattern from the picture. I have written a few patterns myself and it is just kind of anticlimatic after making the quilt. Good luck with your writing.

I love the quilt and the sentiment behind it Rose! I totally agree with you. All too often life is about rushing here and rushing there and not stopping to smell the roses or just relax and eat dinner as a family.

You definitely need Eclairs for pattern writing and homework and....

Well, anytime really!! Lol
