Memories and Making Memories

Some of the ladies of the CQI Yahoo Group are making blocks from old wedding gowns for a Making Memories quilt to be sold to raise funds to grant a final wish to a terminal breast cancer patient. I promised to make 2 blocks. This is my first. Since mom died of breast cancer I feel obligated to help others. I thought of mom as I stitched. She was a drunk  and an absent mother but I loved her anyway. I didn't realize how much until I sat by her side while she was in hospice. I learned how not to be from my mom. That must have been her purpose in life.
