A Work of Love
When Linda was told her first grandchild was going to be a boy, she began planning a quilt she wanted to make for him. She planned to cross stitch the numbers and letters of the alphabet on 4x4 squares and incorporate them into a quilt that exemplified a little boy. She started on the numbers while receiving radiation and chemotherapy but lost her vision while working on number nine. She had it about half completed when she went blind. She had all the material to complete the quilt but could not do it herself. A dear friend and co-worker, Joy Moore told her she could finish the number nine but could not quilt. Lillian Pleasant, Linda's sister, told her she would take the numbers and the material and put the quilt together. The love of a grandmother for her grandchild, a friend for a friend, and a sister for a sister made this beautiful work of love possible. When it was completed Linda could not see it with her eyes but through her hands and her heart she knew what a wonderful work it turned out to be.
