Back in May (http://sherriequilt.blogspot.com/2012/05/prayers-for-judi.html) I asked you all to pray or send positive thoughts to my quilt artist friend Judi, from Hood River, OR, who is facing some major health issues. Well, she's now at the Mayo Clinic undergoing tests and hopefully treatment. She may be there awhile, away from her family, and I was trying to think of something I could send her to help her through.
So I took what started as my Summer Solstice Goddess quilt from last year and embellished her with embroidered vines and some more beading, meditating on her recovery with every stitch. I hope Judi can look at her and envision the day when she will stand radiantly again in the sun, full of health and energy.
Meanwhile, my other quilt artist friend, Sheila from Idaho, is taking care of Judi while she's at Mayo. So I made her a little "caretaker" quiltlet, thinking as I stitched of how strong the bond of friendship and love is between them. Sheila has no idea how long they'll be there, but she jumped right in to help. I'm amazed at their strength.
Here are a few shots of the quiltlets in progress. I worked on them outside because the sun was out.
Please send more
healing thoughts to Judi!
