Ava is Block 10 of Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Sampler Quilt and it’s a nice change to not have to worry about cutting off the points of triangles on this one. I’ve gone for something a little more dramatic with this block. I don’t know why, I hadn’t planned to add black to the quilt but I just couldn’t shake the idea of using black in there some where. It’s going to be interesting to see how this all comes together in the end. It’s all about the journey, right!
Thoughts on the Letter
As someone who used the magic of IVF to realise our dreams of being a family I can totally relate to the sentiment of this letter. It’s true, there’s so many children out there that need love. Even though we’ve had a child of our own I still think about adopting; it’s just a shame the adoption laws in our country are so restrictive. We still have 3 embryos on ice and not a day goes by where I don’t think about those little miracles and wonder when, or if, we’ll get to see them grow outside of their petrie dish. I know our lives would have been just as full without having a child in it, but it’s so nice that we got the opportunity to welcome our little miracle into our home. I will never forget what it was like to want something so badly and have to walk through fire to get it. I will always be thankful and grateful.
