 Summer has flown by.  Adult children are returning one by one from internships, classes and summer jobs.  Our little family is reuniting for a trip to the mountains.  We will reconnect and restore ourselves for the start of a new school year. 
I quilted a mini this week.  I found the pattern in Quilty.  I love the representation of the polka dots that form letters of the Braille alphabet to say, "I love you".  I was inspired by our visit to Helen Keller's home earlier this summer.
Also, doing some mending and thinking how good it is to restore wholeness.  Looking forward to wholeness as a family.
 Mending!  Jessica Pearl


  1. Have a fabulous time. I need to mend one of my boys' blankets. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. darling mini!!! Have a great time with your family!!

  3. Love your mini, especially with the braille message element. And don't mention mending! That always gets pushed way down my list of things to do round here, much too far down at the moment in particular. I think I've got a Summer's dress for Venetia to mend and if I get a move on and do it, it might just fit Maria!

  4. I hope your mountain retreat is as rejuvenating as ours was as a family! ENJOY!!
