It has been often said that your enemies define you. “My best enemy” is also my best friend. She has always been a stubborn little thing who can be very distant at times, but her sweet nature can also cast a charm that is very hard to ignore. We had a rocky start because of our hotheadedness but our relationship evolved into a strong bond over the years. We have been known to annoy each other the most and also to love each other equally. I have found my biggest strengths through her and utmost weaknesses because of her. To me, She will always be a Winter Rosebud trying to bloom amidst snow.
If you haven’t guessed it already, this wall hanging is about our friendship. I mirrored this photo to show what the quilting looks like from the front. I started with quilting our initials – S and P – written together in the centre. I am glad of the hourglass shape, which was a complete coincidence born from my doodling, adding that extra touch of everlasting friendship through time. The stars in the night sky also seem to last forever, and I have always dreamt of seeing them a little closer. So I quilted the circles around our initials as though she and I are travelling together through the stars. Finally, I added “Universe and Us” in Gallifreyan within our initials.
Since travelling through space requires a ship, I borrowed the idea of The Doctor’s Tardis. It is so much more romantic than any earth-rocket!
I can take on the Universe with her beside me and she would come along just to be with me!!
Update – I got a few enquiries about the Winter Rose quilt pattern. The pattern can be found in my shop. Thank you so much!
