So far from home. So very far from home. These are frequently said in my home. Photos hold so many memories of childhood days, wedding photos of bright days—all do not do justice for longing of those babies cuddled and now grown.
My daughter now says those words to her own family. Mary is and has always been an adventurer; she met and married Richard in Cambridge, England. Now they are in Switzerland, along with 3-year old Benjamin.
Recently she asked to put my quilting skills to work and make some pennants to replace the baby-themed ones that then hung across Benjamin’s wall.

Don’t forget! Remember us! Here we are, little man!

So far from home, but at least now we are almost there.
Photos are iron-on inkjet printable fabric sheets. Works well enough, but I also sewed around the fabric photos. The pennants are detachable and reversible.
