WELCOME TO MY "OTHER" BLOG!

If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!



This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show and Tell - An Extentsion of Handmade Love

If you are going through these Show and Tells in order - then you would have recently read Show and Tell - Handmade Love at my grief/loss blog.

This is the extention S&T: the quilts of celebration that followed as Emma's little sisters came along two years later, then two more. As I've said before, with all my writings in varied locations I know you know my kids real names so I am fine with showing you these quilts. But, using Bear and The Comedian has become something of a habit - one that makes me smile, so I will continue doing so.

First Bear's quilt -


Do you see the bunnies? Sisters connected in every fabric of their lives!
And The Comedian's:

So delicate, so classic with tiny embroidered roses.

*sigh* - I love knowing that they will have these for the rest of their lives...and when they leave me my mother might possible make me a compliation quilt so all three girls can come together, as they should be, in our home.

They are gorgeous. I think a compilation quilt sounds like a very special thing.

So beautiful, what an artist your mom is.

Those are so beautiful. A compilation quilt is a wonderful idea. The girls are going have those quilts forever, how amazing is that?!

Pretty quilts.

Wow....I love the quilts...and their colours....Bear's is so colourful! And it has pictures!

I like Comedian's too, but can't really make out the pattern.


I was just wondering...have you ever considered not letting the Internets know the real identity of your daughters? That idea just came to my mind, so I thought I should...


I hope to see the third quilt soon!

What lovely quilts! My best friend made an exquisite one as a wedding gift. It's still one of my favourite things we received- handmade with love!
