Quilled Dedication to Dear Granny!

Have been in MIA for past 3 weeks and missing many fellow bloggers' updates too :(
My little one has started his KG1 and so he was keeping me very busy...Atlast i could find sometime to do what i wished for past few months....

Yes....Its a Quilled Dedication to "my dearmost" sweet granny who passed away few months back. She was 94 yrs then and her absence, still gives us pain.


Her wisdom is an art
     She shares so generously --- 
Her words are golden thread
     That bind our family.

We're covered by a quilt of love ---
     It warms us like no other
God used the hands of one so dear...
     The one we call "Grandmother"

Happened to see these verses in net about Grandmother and felt would be so very apt for my dear granny.

Took print out in a watercolor paper and distressed with spun sugar and fayered burlap distress inks. And added generoulsy pink pearls for the border and white pearls for the flower centres. Tried different quilled flowers to make the arrangement around the verses. Its yet to be framed.
