Miss H came to live with my cousin and her young family for this past school year as part of a student exchange program.
She came, not knowing English, our weather nor our Canadian customs.
She touched our lives and we are thrilled we had the opportunity to get to know her.
She left last month to return to her home in Japan where she will finish school. “See you someday” was her goodbye.
We know she has big dreams and we are excited to stay connected and watch her adventure.
My mom and I made this Canadiana quilt for her to take home with her so she could get a “Canadian Family Hug” anytime she wanted one.
Mom embroidered part of our national anthem as well as the names of her host family (my cousin’s family) on the quilt.
Size = 60″x60″
No batting (it’s warm where she lives in Japan)
Backing = Red Maple Leaf fleece (so snuggly)
