Delilah's Quilt

I have the most wonderful group of online stitchers I belong to and they did the most AWESOME thing!  They made a 'comfort' quilt for my beautiful granddaughter who was diagnosed with leukemia.  The following are some pictures I took:  [PICTURE HEAVY]

The following two photos show the front of the quilt with some wonderful stitchy pieces laying against the back of the quilt.


The following are some individual pictures including the stitchy pieces.  My dear stitching sisters I hope you can find yours.






















God Bless you all ladies.  What a wonderful thing you have done and have touched my heart so deeply.

Love, hugs & prayers,
Cathryn

December 24, 2014

Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night!
Christmas in lands of the fir tree and pine,
Christmas in lands of the palm tree and vine;
Christmas where snow-peaks stand solemn and white,
Christmas where corn-fields lie sunny and bright;
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

Christmas where children are hopeful and gay,
Christmas where old men are patient and gray,
Christmas where peace, like a dove in its flight,
Broods o'er brave men in the thick of the fight;
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

For the Christ-child who comes is the Master of all,
No place too great and no cottage too small;
The Angels who welcome Him sing from the height,
"In the city of David, a King in His might."
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

Then let every heart keep its Christmas within
Christ's pity for sorrow, Christ's hatred for sin.
Christ's care for the weakest, Christ's courage for right,
Christ's dread of the darkness, Christ's love of the light.
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

So the stars of the midnight which compass us round
Shall see a strange glory, and hear a sweet sound,
And cry, "Look! the earth is aflame with delight,
O sons of the morning, rejoice at the sight."
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.
