Square and Wish #27

Dear Baby Cudahy,

Our wish for you is the prayer I say for Brenna and Bria. I whisper it to them as I put them to sleep every night:

May God always watch over you: keep you safe, happy, and healthy. May you always know how much you are loved, and by so many. May you never forget that no one will ever love you more than your parents.

God Bless You Always!

Michele and Roger
(Bria too!) Brenna's square is #28
The wish is written on the background paper from Michele's Bridal Shower.

The Jacket that Wasn't

I learned how to sew in junior high school. In "Home Ec", we learned how to sew (an apron decorated with rick rack) and also to cook. I didn't make much use of either skill while I was in school. It was too "old fashioned".

However, when I was in my 20's, I decided I wanted to learn all of those handicraft skills like sewing, needlepoint, crocheting, knitting and making rugs. I got to be pretty decent at them all. In sewing, I got to the skill level to make jackets. I decided I was going to make a velvet jacket. I picked out the material; and it has sat in the Jo Ann Fabrics bag for at least 35 years.

So, I'm giving you two (2) squares of that velvet that should have been a jacket; but didn't quite make it.

I hope you have better stick-to-it-ivness than I did.

We hope every vacation with our child is as much fun as the one we had with Julie and Alyssa.

Square and Wish #19

An inch of time is an inch of gold,

But you can't buy that inch of time

With an inch of gold

The time you spend with your children is priceless

Square and Wish #18

From my mom:

My wish for you darling grandchild is nothing but sheer happiness in your life. May you grow strong and beautiful just like your mother. Also I wish that God lets me live long enough and healthy enough so I can watch you grow up. I so long to be a part of your life.

Love forever,
The fabric was cut from my grandmother's bathrobe

Square and Wish #15

From the Scandole Family

We hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
We hope you still feel small
When you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes, we hope one more opens
Promise us that you'll gove fate a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
We hope you dance
-Leann Womack
