Amazing Grace re-pete this blog entry was originally posted 11/3/09

Grandma Grace is now in Hospice care and getting ready to leave this world. Family and friends are very sad indeed. She is a wonderful woman and this blog entry of mine bears repeating. Please send thoughts and prayers to Amazing Grace.


This image is one year old. It is of Grandma Grace Gallaway, in this image she is 94 and was on leg one of a cross country trip. Today she is 95 and in the hospital recovering from pneumonia. I had a long quilting conversation with her last night. She has been quilting since she was 11 years old. That is 84 years! She came across this country from Oklahoma to California in a covered wagon. This wonderful woman only has a grade school education but has put many family members through college and has written a book and has 2 more in the works. She is amazing. Anyway last night I asked her the age old quilters question. Have you made all the quilts that you wanted to make? And her answer was YES! So there it is. It can be done in a lifetime. Just thought you would want to know...
