|First block - Grandma's shirt|
I have two of their shirts that I'm turning into a Memory Quilt. I started blogging about it HERE. My hope is that one day my children will read these stories of their great grandparents and perhaps find a little of themselves in Grandma and Grandpa.
Gordon first saw Anne at a skate rink. He saw her leaving and he thought she was Beautiful! He didn't know her name, but being the non-intimidated male that he was, he went after her anyway. She didn't notice him or his frantic effort to get her attention. Anne was cool and elegant, not a giddy little girl. He just had to get her to turn around, but she was getting further and further from him. His last hopeful attempt to get her to see him was to call out her name; however, he hadn't met her yet and therefore had no idea what her name was. He started calling out names, any name he could think of "Judith!! Mary!!! Gerta!!" What was he to do? Louder, "Helen!!! Martha!!!" And then....she turned around. :)
Anne was just as smitten as Gordon and it didn't take long before they said, "I DO" and they did ... forever.

|Grandpa's shirt needs a little love and care before I cut it into squares. It's been well worn and loved.|

More to come!
Until then, I hope your day is full of sweet memories of someone you love. Happy quilting! -Little Mama Hen
