Tangible Memories


www.storypatchquilts.com

My lovely and super talented Sister-in-Law
made me this beautiful quilt made up of Matt's shirts.
Each shirt tells a story:

He wore the bright orange on our 1st date...
He had on the burgundy shirt the day I fell in love with him...
He wore the blue vertical stripe at Kate's wedding...
The lavender one was worn at our wedding...
He wore the brown horizontal stripe I bought him all the time, it's so worn...
I loved him in the red horizontal stripe...
He looked so handsome in his navy "metro" shirt...
All his Conservatory shirts...
His "No, I will not fix your computer" and "Five Bucks Coffee" statement shirts...

I am so grateful to Cindy.
I feel like I still have a little piece of him with me, however superficial it is.
I'll take whatever I can get.
These Tangible Memories of mine...
