Our family had two important milestones last week. My father turned 80 years old. And our eldest daughter, Lea, graduated from high school.
I made two handmade graduation gifts for Lea. The first was a water-colored quote (at the very top of this post). All her life, Lea has drawn cards for family and friends, and so I wanted to make one for her this time. The second gift was a quilt for her college dorm room. It is mostly purples taken from my mother’s quilting stash. Lea shared a love of the color purple with my mom.
