It's amazing to think that these 3 little pieces of linen
that started this whole quilt
were in a box with my embroidery floss for over 40 years.
My Oma Luise was here in California visiting us
and taught me to embroider on them.
To find out more about the story of this quilt
For now let me just say
that I am soooooo happy it is done
in time for my Mom to take it to Germany
with her next week!
The 3 embroideries represent
my cousins, Maika, Norma and Sonny :)
I hope my aunt feels all the love
that went into this
and the fact that my Oma (her mother)
actually stitched a part of this makes it so much more special!
You may be wondering why my German aunt
is called Tia Helene?????
well that's because my hunky Cuban hubby called her that
when we visited them 16 years ago in Germany
and she loved it and it stuck :)
Latin men.....they have a way about them!
