Good end to a not so good week......


Last week was a hard week for our family being the 2nd anniversary of losing our son but we all move on.
To celebrate my husbands birthday we went and bought something very special for us to enjoy some time together....
A MOTORHOME. We are keeping his name , from the previous owners, as BASIL...

The owners were just lovely and helpful that I made them a quilt so they have something to remember BASIL and us...

I can't wait to start going away in him. 
Of course there will be some hand stitching that travels too...
