Laura’s Quilt

I met Herbert in Laos, many many years ago. It was in a tiny village on a river’s bank. I was heartbroken at the time, sad and silent and quite a bad travelling companion. Nevertheless, he thought I was amusing and nice, and we became friends. We’ve been in touch ever since, I even visited him at his home in Switzerland a few years ago. Years went by, Herbert met and married the lovely Martina, and about a year ago they had their first baby daughter – Laura Adina.

I’ve never met baby Laura, but in the photographs she looks like the funniest, sweetest little thing. I was so happy for Herbert when she was born, I couldn’t put it in words. I kept telling him “I’m making something special for Laura!”, month after month. So far I failed to deliver. At first, when she was born, I was very busy with work; then, I didn’t buy enough fabric; then, busy again… When I finally sat down and sew (NOT my strongest skill), it took me forever to get it done.

Well, now It’s done. I made it. I’m proud to present – Laura’s quilt!

As it took me so long to complete and she’s not a tiny baby anymore, I figured I’d make the blanket large enough to fit a toddler’s first “grownup” bed.

There’s (obviously!) a card that comes with the quilt: The front has the same triangular pattern as the quilt, the inside is popping with hearts :).

I hope she’ll love it!

    מקסים! אין לי ספק שהתוצאה שווה את ההמתנה הארוכה ואת העבודה הסיזיפית (וזו עבודה סיזיפית, בזה אין ספק!) – מתה על שילוב הצבעים ועל הכרטיס התואם. איזו מתנה נפלאה!!!
