~After many hours of deliberation and some very sweet comments I decided to go ahead and send in the quilt to the Nie Nie Benefit Etsy Auction set for Sept 23-24th. I included a handwritten thank you note explaining my rationale and feelings regarding the quilt as to why I went ahead and sent in a less than perfect auction item.
My heart was moved to create this quilt, I then had the washing/bleeding mishap and I was devastated. But in actuality I was reminded of how human we all are. Seriously, we are human beings and we are not perfect. Therefore all that we are, all that we touch is really imperfect…. I tend to forget things like that.
I feel like even though I do not know Stephanie and Mr. Nelson, their children or any of their family, I really do know them on some level. I know they are in a family in crisis and they need support. So, this is my little tiny way of helping a family that is so far away, it is not much but my heart told me to do it and I listened. So, to whomever (if anyone) purchases this quilt, just think of the little spots as a reminder that we are all human and try as we might, we will never be perfect….
