52 Weeks Green

52 week badge
We are going green for this weeks Focus On Life photo. 
GREEN!  The color of balance, learning, growth and harmony!  GREEN evokes feelings of calm and symbolizes self-respect and well being.  What a great color to focus on!

Sally suggested the photo did not have to be all green but also contrasting and/or muted colors. So I chose to show a very special quilt that I had when I was little.  My twin sister and I got the same one, made by a long time family friend.  It's about 36 x 36 inches, just perfect to swaddle our dolls.  I'm so glad my mom and dad kept these for us, and just weeks ago my dad gave it to me. 


This is the back side.

As always, I appreciate your visit here, though many times I just can't get back around to responding to your comments, though I do try.

Now to see more green things check out Sally's blog

I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!

That is wonderful Alice! I love to hold things from my childhood and what better than a small quilt. You should hang it as a wall hanging in your home. I'm a (former) quilter so I guess I'm partial.

Lovely quilt. So great that you and your twin got those beauties and that you have kept it over the years.

Oh, I just love quilts and this one looks so snuggly and well-loved. How great to have reclaimed a childhood treasure! And, you have a twin. Very cool.

How lovely to still have your quilt, and it looks in excellent condition considering it was 'used' so much by your dolls! I'm wondering what you will do with it now you have it back, it is so beautiful it deserves to be seen and loved!
