Good Afternoon My AngelSewing Tribe!
➡ I can finally reveal the very special project I have been working on!! It is ‘sew’, ‘sew’ very close to my heart ❤
A very special lady in my life passed back in 2006 at only 18 years of age, as you can imagine it was a shock to everyone. Everyone that knew and loved her are still very close to her family, myself included. They always ensure that her name and memory lives on, we regularly share stories and memories of such happy times.
This year is Kimberly’s 30th Birthday. Something special just had to be done to honour our beautiful friend, daughter, sister, auntie, granddaughter and niece. We had a lovely get together at Debbie & Duncan’s house (Kimmy’s parents) where everyone was able to catch up and look at lots of photos and share such special memories.
Debbie wished to do something really special for everyone at the get together to commemorate Kimmy’s 30th.
Here is where ‘A Basket Of Hearts’ was created.. Debbie carefully selected items of Kimmy’s clothing that would be special for everyone from favourite and memorable tops to loved and lived in denim skirts and even a schools leavers day suit. From here I carefully selected and outlined all of the best features from each item and lovingly put them together to create a whole basket of unique custom made keepsake hearts – enough for everyone.
The custom keepsake hearts were received exceptionally well at the party by everyone who attended and Debbie had managed to keep it a huge secret from everyone! It was even a pleasant surprise for Duncan. There will be some custom keepsake hearts travelling over the country and even overseas for Kimmy’s brother who could sadly not attend and was missed by all.
I am overwhelmed by how happy it makes me feel to see ‘sew’ many people gain even just a little bit of comfort from my creations – this is truly what it is all about.
I have been quite quiet these last couple of months as I have been working extremely hard on making these special unique custom keepsake hearts just perfect.
I hope you will all agree with me that they are all gorgeous and for those of you that knew Kimmy they really are a true representation of her and a tiny little piece of her beautiful and kind spirit – May she continue to live on in us all.
Lots Of Love To You All
