The passing of a lovely lady
Some of you might remember my criss cross applesauce quilt that I made for my grandmother's 91st birthday. She passed away on Tuesday but I know that she loved her quilt, being the Southern lady that she was, she sent me a handwritten thank you note very shortly after receiving the quilt.
My grandmother was a small petite little thing with a size 4.5 shoe that did not allow the children in the proper living room (unless it was Christmas), I swear I thought I would be struck down by lightening if I had crossed the threshold of the doorway of that room. She drank tea, had a library of cookbooks and took me to see my great grandmother in the old folks home. I loved the way she talked, the way she smelled and the way she would always clear her throat when she was upset. She never raised her voice to me, she never had to where I was concerned.
My children and I will be with our family members to celebrate her life and our love for Louise Mae...our Weece...
