A Tribute To/From My Friend Soulbrush; The Best Animal: A Human Baby! Meet Maggie Rae If You Haven't Already Had The Pleasure! Happy Animal Wednesday!

Yesterday Soulbrush honoured me on her blog by showing the quilts I made for her. I have posted them here again, not to show off my art, but to show you SOUL'S SOUL that went into this quilt: Forever Young And I wanted you to be able to click on them to see them in detail. Soul as a child, her men in her life, her beloved Aunt Essie, her own wonderful art work, her connection to South Africa, her wonderful brother:brother and sister young and now, her doggie Snuffles... Soul's mother and aunt, her religious heritage, more art, more So. Africa, Soul at Sixty, baby Soul... The whole cloth...what a labor of love it was...thanks Soul for asking for it and letting me into your life so deeply...what a gift to me this was/is... And now the one to whom it will go... Look what Soulbrush posted on her blog this week! Maggie Rae is playing with the taggy quiltlet I made her. And she's saying Hi to Grandma Lynnie. That's me! Hi Maggie!!!! Sending you love and hugs back all the way to London Town. (permission granted from Grandie Soul to publish all these photos here of her precious Maggie) Isn't she adorable? Yes she is!!! Well, I studied it, I grabbed it, I chewed on it, what else am I supposed to do with this silly thing? I think I've gone and mastered it! What's next Grandma Lynnie? ************************************************************************************* Now here I am again, on my bright colorful quilted Grandie Bag/Mat you made for me/us. I like all these bright colors, and soon I will be sitting on it and pointing to my Grandie and all the animals here! You can see me searching them all out now in fact! I am!!! Oh look she is blowing me a kiss, she is! xoxoxo to you too Maggie Rae! Love and hugs from Grandma Lynnie!!!!
