Here are the long awaited lyrics I have heard this song a few times on CHVN and I have never known the song title or artist but my wonderful hubby was listening tonight while at work and found out. She is singing to her still born child I have yet to find the C.D and find out the details but here are the lyrics and they ring true with this baby loss momma!!!Its by Sarah Folden

I shortened the lyrics for repetition
She sings like an angel
Still by Sarah Folden
I’ve been waiting for you for such a long time;
you’re always on my mind.
And I’m lying awake,
most of the night,
waiting to hold you tight.

Lost in time,
lost in space,
can’t wait to see your face.
Now that I do
and look at you,
my heart is breaking,
this can’t be true.

Close to my heart,
close to my soul,
right from the start.
Lost you before I found you,
gone before you came,
but I love you just the same.
Missed you before I met you,
but in heaven we will meet again.

Sometimes I find myself wondering what to do,
with this pain that I am going through,
but I know one day,
God will take me away
and I’m coming home to you.
And when I do and look at you,
my heart is healing,
I know its true;
In heaven we’ll meet again.

hand piecing

It is no secret that I enjoy the piecing part of quilting the actual quilting part seems not to be so enjoyable for me. To this point I have never hand pieced a quilt top, that is until now...... I recently read one of Jennifer Chiaverini and she spoke at length about hand piecing and so I decided to give it a whirl here are my blocks so far!!

ahhhh the guilt

yup the guilt...... you see I have some friends and family that were expecting so I aske them all to pick a baby quilt and I would make them each one, there were a total of 5 women, 3 picked the same quilt and one picked the kites and one didn't pick one at all, of those 5 baby quilts only 2 are done and with the babies, the other 2 are tops and one will be quilted this week, but here's the guilt the babies are here and are 4 and 5 months old, not only that but I also have my sisters wedding quilt to finish and she reminded me that it has been almost 6 months so I have ALOT to do!!! I also have been hired to do a custom baby quilt and have a requst for a friends toddler son's quilt as he's the only one who didn't get one as a baby!! I will also be doing some sewing to amp up the kids christmas gifts. The pic posted is the fabrics I'll be playing with to make the gifts for the kids as well as a new pair of christmas jammy's for each member of the family. I am sitting on 18 metres of fanneltte in brown, red and green of that everyone will get jammy's that are different enough without being to matchy, that's the plan anyhow!!! Looking at the pic I realize that I have also added the fabric I bought for my mom it will be an appron for her and a child size appron you see she LOVES to bake with the grandkids, her appron will have stitching on the front and will say what happens at grandmas house stays at grandmas house!!! Wish me luck!!
