OK – a five minute post and I’m off to quilting…. If I want a detour in my life, all I have to do is make plans to quilt and Wham!!! There will be an obstacle guaranteed…I worked yesterday and ran through the checklist of evening chores, took a bath and … got called back in to work. A plane’s nose wheel went flat upon landing, No one was hurt but we had to get parts in line so the plane could run tomorrow. By the time I got home again, it was time to start winding down.
I had a great Mother’s day. I got a necklace from Don/Ransom, rubber stamps from Chelsey, and a book from Eric. I loved all of them. It’s interesting how the gifts reflect my time with them. Eric and I loved to get at opposite ends on the couch and read—we always say we’re bonding. Or we love to go to Barnes and Noble. We’re even sharing a discount card together. It’s “our” thing. Chelsey and I make cards and “play with scissors “ together, so the stamps make sense.
Yesterday I opened up the mail box and got fabric from a friend.
I loved it. I think I held onto it all evening. I plan on using it in my “Journey of a Quilter” piece I’m working on. It seems fitting as I met her in my journey of quilting. I brought it to work to show my friend at work. An interesting thing happened. Chelsey stopped by for lunch. We’re sitting there talking and she says something:
“Mom – you’re such a dork…I’ve never seen you pick out fabric with words on it before. If I walked into a quilt store, I’d never pick this piece for you… you just like it because a quilter sent it to you….” I thought about it---
But I’m crazy about the piece—
Because I love the color… I love the words written on it…. and because a quilter sent it to me…..
