A Grateful Heart

A Grateful Heart
by Joannell Connolly

I purchased this wonderful quilt from the now ended Keiko and Friends Art Quilts exhibit. http://www.artfabrik.com/gallerykeiko.htm
The imagery and title made it the perfect gift for Matthew (and Suzie).

We spent yesterday celebrating Matthew's 15th New Heart birthday with him in Greensboro. Suzie joined us for lunch at a great Thai restaurant - Thai Bangkok. The food was delicious and the hot jasmine tea soothing, as Greensboro was very cold with snow still on the ground.

Green Curry - notice the 'cone' of rice on the right.

Sweet and Sour - YUM!

Matthew demonstrates his new Flight Simulator computer game.
He'd love to fly if he could, and would make a great pilot.

Keiko Goke is one of my favorite quilt artists. This piece, with the three hearts, seems so symbolic of my family's experiences over the past 15 years.
