Elizabeth Pokluda

My Grandma is the most awesome and strongest woman I know.I spent alot of time with her,even into my adulthood.She could make the best chicken and dumplings ever and when I was home last time she made them for me.She was always baking or making something from food to quilts.I even moved close to her after I had kids.We lived in the same town and I saw her often.She loved gardening and canning foods and I loved helping her.She was always there for me to lean on and lean I did.Grandma always treated me with the upmost respect and loved me more than ever no matter what choices I made in live and believe me I made some really bad onesHere is some of her work
She made awesome quilts and the one behind Jeremy is mine.This picture is from 2003 at her 90th birthday party and these are 4 of my children.
She is being moved to hospice and I hope she is not in pain.
I love you Grandma

I have always wanted to learn to quilt! A lost art don't you think?

Brilliant post, thanks for sharing!

I do think it is lost but I love it and I have severe RA in my hands.
