Once again, I made my Uncle Tim hold my quilt for photos! This is the Mt. Hood quilt by @violetcraft that I made for my dear friend’s first baby. β™₯️ Swipe to see details. πŸ‘‰πŸ‘€
.
.
.
Mt. Hood was a big part of @runellirun’s childhood, so we thought it was the perfect quilt for her baby’s nursery! I just adored working on this quilt, and filled it with oh-so-much love for her and for her daughter! I was genuinely sad when I finished the last stitch in the binding. It was like the last day of a holiday, knowing that there was nothing left to do and all stitches had run their course. But I simply cannot wait to see it hanging above her daughter’s crib! πŸ₯°
.
.
I stuck with basic quilting outlines of each individual block, and hand-quilted each constellation with 12wt white thread to keep it from being too busy. It’s a glow-in-the-dark fabric, so I really wanted it to stay the focus of the quilt! I also kept the moon simple by using a metallic opal-y linen, and hand-quilted only at the borders of it to give it a poofy, three-dimensional look. On the back, I fixed three pockets for a dowel rod to hang. The middle was sewn on before I pinned the quilt (and I pinned VERY carefully 😬), and the other two corner pockets were basted on before I sewed the binding on. .

It was the week before Christmas when he came in to our store ❀️ He was planning to propose Christmas week, he was so very excited and so very nervous πŸ₯° He chose the most beautiful ring, we spent ages agonizing over the details but in the end we got it just right.
.
That was nearly 18 months ago. Every now and then I thought of them and wondered did she say yes? I always worry when I’m involved in helping someone choose their ring, what if they don’t love it? πŸ™ˆ
.
When I walked into the store the other day there he was and he told me their story πŸ’Œ
.
He had worked up the courage to propose, they were down home for the week and he chose their favourite spot where they loved to walk. He said she wasn’t feeling the best and kept wanting to turn back, but she said she would keep going and they carried on to the spot he had planned β›° .
When they got there he started to go down on one knee, as he did the colour drained out of her face and he thought she’s going to say no! He said he thought he would just pretend he was joking, but then he decided he had the ring in his pocket and all he could do was ask πŸ’—
.
She said yes πŸ’« (and later told him she was feeling sick and that’s why she went white! πŸ™ˆ)
.
They got married this weekend, he was in with us because the first gift he ever gave her was an initial necklace with her initials on it 🎁 She had lost it and he wanted to get her a new one so her gift on the morning of their wedding would be a memento of where it all started that she could keep forever πŸ’«
.
All my love to the two of you ❀️

The first is a gift to herself, she said she said having her heart broken was the best and worst thing that had ever happened to her ⚑️ It made her find her inner strength, to own her future and always take care of herself πŸ’• .
The second marks a significant birthday, she said she wanted a keepsake and to be a fierce 90 year old who told her grandchildren outrageous stories! πŸ’ͺ🏻
.
The last is the sweetest proposal, he came in with her best friend πŸ’— He was so nervous, he had been planning it for so long but the fear of whether she would like the ring he chose held him back πŸ’”β€οΈ They chose this darling together and he’s proposing this weekend πŸ™Š

He said it had taken 12 years πŸ’—
.
He was nervous, had chosen the most beautiful grey diamond but he was worrying if it was the right one? I asked him did he have a plan for how he was proposing?
.
He said it had taken longer than he had planned, that other things had come up but he always loved her and wanted to choose the perfect moment ⚑️
.
He said he wanted her to know how important she was to him and to their two boys. He had told the boys that he was proposing to their Mum and the three of them were going to ask her to marry him on Mother’s Day πŸ’«
.
He sent me a message last night to say she said yes! ❀️
.
To modern love stories, congratulations and all my love to the four of them (and their gorgeous dog Murphy!) πŸ₯‚

She said leaving him was the hardest thing she had ever done πŸ’”
.
They had the perfect life, two gorgeous kids, a lovely home, brilliant jobs. But underneath everything was broken.
.
She asked him what time they were me#ant to be going to his brothers, he said to check his phone. When she found the messages she felt like the bottom had dropped out of her world.
.
She says she still loves him, but that she could never trust him again. Years worth of lies had eroded her love. They went to counseling, he promised to stop but he didn’t. .
She said her hand felt naked after so long wearing her wedding rings, she wanted to keep them for her daughter but she said she wanted to start a new chapter for her πŸ’—
.
We made her a new set of rings, I was with her when she first put them on and she started crying. I thought I had made a mistake, but she said it felt like the start of her new life ⚑️
