I have already gotten my Fiance a watch, as he really loves them and I accidentally broke his nice brown leather one, so I bought a new one And I’m going to give it to him the morning of the wedding with a tag attached that says “see you at 5 o’clock.”
I love that but now I’m feeling like it’s kind of impersonal, so I got an idea of something else to give him, along with the watch, but I’m not sure if its appropriate or not.
Okay, so, a year ago, we had a house fire that destroyed pretty much everything we owned. My Fiance had a quilt on the couch that was his great grandmother’s and was really special to him. I saved a few pieces of it from the rubble, and stored it away in my father’s basement. I think my Fiance has completely forgotten about it by now.
I was thinking of taking one of the larger pieces and framing it and giving it to my Fiance as a wedding gift.
So, Bees, I was wondering, would this be appropriate or just a strange time to give it to him? Thanks so much in advance!

As someone who’s lived through a house fire as well, I can’t think of a better time to gift a piece of the past they thought they had lost. Love it. 💛

That’s a lovely idea. Do you plan on having babies? Maybe have it made into a bigger baby blanket or even a bigger quilt for the two of you?

That’s what I was thinking, it’s nice to have a quilt piece framed but it would be wonderful to incorporate it into a new quilt that can be used.

I would do that, but due to the smoke damage and chemicals used while putting the fire out, it wouldn’t be safe, and there’s no way it could be washed as all the edges are completely burnt away and falling apart. Even just touching the quilt, pieces fall off. It was on the couch and the couch was where the main part of the fire was.
I wish I could do that though, because that would be beautiful!
