Farewell to a Quilter



We got the sad news this morning that Nan (Simon's Dad's mother) just died. She was in her eighties, but had been relatively healthy, so it was rather a nasty surprise.

Here she is with James as a newborn:
With Eleanor as a newborn:
Four generations of the family:
James on the quilt she made him:
And Eleanor on the other side of the same quilt:
And Nan a few months ago at Zoe's first birthday:

We will miss you, Nan.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss Emma. She looks like a gorgeous lady and I feel really sad for you all. It's lovely that your children got to spend time with such a special lady.
