|Fabric: “Pretty Potent” by Anna Maria Horner
This bit of sunshine brightens the wall above the antique desk in our living room.
It is one of the first pieces of wall decor to be seen as one enters the room.
My dad was the first of all the family members to notice the new wall art.
He said it just looks like sunshine when he walks in the room.
His comment is particularly special to me because, my dad you see, is dying of brain cancer.
He has a very difficult time expressing his thoughts in words.
If you’ve ever been around a person who has cancerous tumors in his or her brain,
you know that their speech deteriorates almost daily.
He comments every day on how that mini quilt brings the sunshine inside.
This one will always be very special to me because of the way it brightens my dad’s last days.
I encourage you, my friends, no matter what season of life you may be in right now,
God will shine on you when you ask His Son into your life.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
