Today I had the pleasure of watching a caring, sensitive member of our By Hoki Quilters group complete a small but very meaningful project. You see way back last year, 19th November to be exact, there was an awful mining accident at Pike River.
Pike River is just north of Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. 29 Miners lost their lives at that mine and many families lost Dads, sons, partners and heroes.
Using photo transfer paper and carefully selecting fabric that suited the lost Dads hobbies Sue set about to make a cushion. Something that could be there all the time, something that could be cuddled and treasured.
Sue chose a photo of the young boys Dad that also showed his Dad’s dog , as he had recently had to deal with the loss of that too.
I think Sue made a fabulous job of her pillow and I know I’m going to be in so much trouble from Sue for showing a photo of her, but credit where credit is due I say, what an awesome job she made and check out the fantastic label too.
Good on you Sue, I’m proud to have such a lady in our group that I can call a friend.
