A Flower a Day
Rebecca Seah lives in Vermont with her husband and daughter. She is a seamstress - sewing since she was 10 - and a stay-at-home mother. She loves to create one-of-a-kind quilts and clothes in her spare time.
Featured in December of the 2011 calendar is one of her handmade creations. She wanted this quilt to resemble the styles of the 1930's and 1940's and this prints on this quilt are reproduction fabrics from that era.
“We often give gifts in celebration but we also give gifts to people when they are hurt or feeling down,” said Rebecca. “One of the most common gifts given to a friend or loved one is flowers. They are a beautiful way to bring a smile on someone's face. The form of artwork I created makes the flower last forever.”
Rebecca's one-of-a-kind creation was made with love and made for memories. “Best of all,” she said, “when you are feeling down you are always able to take this flower back out to remind you that you are loved.”
