    What a lovely, lovely thing to do. Her life HAS been hard, but she has borne it with grace and faith. Thank you for sharing not only the quilt, but the story of your mother. She is an inspiration.

  2. Such a hard life, such a soft quilt. Love the pinks and the pinwheels but Jeanette’s smile is the best of all. Thank you for sharing such a heartwarming story.

  3. Wonderful post, and wonderful story and wonderful woman. I’m so glad you nominated her, and that there are these good good people in the world, like Jeanette and like Sue Daurio, and like you! This reminds me of something Stuart McLean used to do, a well-known, and well-loved Canadian author, and host of the radio show “The Vinyl Cafe” who used to give out Arthur Awards once a year where people nominated someone in this same vein. We need more of these positive celebrations and recognitions.

    What a blessing and inspiration Jeanette is! I am wiping tears from eyes as I type this. Give her a big old hug and a kiss from me. So much goodness in one person!

    That is so wonderful. Caregivers are definitely in need of care themselves and a quilt of appreciation is just perfedt.

    Hello Roseanne, I was so touched while reading about this extra special woman that has touched the hearts of so many and helped each family member through a difficult journey. While she also, I am sure, helped so many other family/friends deal with all of the emotions and so forth that go along with cancer. Jeanette was indeed a perfect candidate for this honor and she did receive a beautiful quilt to wrap around her and keep her warm during the times that the memories of the loved ones she helped find her needing a bit more of a hug, just pull the quilt love a bit tighter and it does make a huge difference. Thank you so much for sharing this spectacular post with us! Have a magnificent day!

    How awesome!!! I love Sue and her work, so glad Sue’s Mom has a piece of it in her life. I just love the two pieces she quilted for me.

  10. What a beautiful gift for Jeanette, and so appropriate. I cannot imagine going through so many tough life situations as she has, but she has been given a gift of grace and strength and she uses it well. I hope she enjoys many, many years of relaxing under that pretty quilt!

  11. What a beautiful woman. Thank you for recognizing her.

  12. How wonderful that Jeanette could receive such a splendid gift of love. I am always amazed that some people go through so much yet are so giving. I have a funny story to share with you about Sue and a misdirected package…I am more aware of her work than I was!

    Most people wouldn’t be able to handle all Jeanette has been through, but she is one strong lady. Wonderful she was recognized in the form of a quilty love.
