A Restoration of Love

I was asked to restore a quilt - which I happily agreed to do. But when I saw it - I literally thought it would be impossible to do anything with it. The blanket had been well well loved by its owner. All the material and lace was paper thin. There was no batting left. And what was this guy all about?After quizzing the owner I discovered the little animal above is a turtle - who was holding three balloons. The last of the balloons had her name embroidered on it. I really feared there was no hope ... this is what I managed to pull off. I feel touched that I was asked to help restore her beloved quilt and hope it will bring many more happy memories for years to come.
