It was heartening to hear from some of you that everybody has one of “those” days now and then. Becky doesn’t think it’s age related – and she may be right as I try to do too many things. So like I said, today will be a better day!
Sharon in Indiana visited an antique mall and found this – our book from about 20 years ago – Wear Warm Clothes! Now I really do feel old! They’re seven an inscription inside the front cover that is quite sweet.
Years ago I found one of our first rabbit dolls in an antique mall, too, which also made me feel old. Haha!
And please let’s not get into why the post about using jelly rolls for rugs showed up because I can’t tell you.
And I think the baskets of scraps are multiplying for cryin’ out loud – here are two more I found tucked away in my cupboard.
But with a bit of work while watching Netflix or a ballgame, those scraps become this beautiful sight!
And I always have a helper or two. Looking at these pictures of strips gives me goosebumps!
Yesterday I met an old friend, Carolyn Pope, for lunch and it’s good to keep in touch with her kids and their lives – we’ve been friends for many years and even though we don’t see each other often, it’s like we’ve just seen each other last week – a very nice easy friendship. We met at the noodle cafe and our meals were delicious. She had a rice noodle dish with a Greek salad and I had buffalo chicken mac and cheese.
With the weather finally changing to sunny days I had to get out one of my favorite table toppers from our book Civil War Remembered. This is actually a pastel version of the cover quilt shown here called Devil’s Claw. I can hardly believe it’s the same quilt pattern.
And as always I have a cat prop – haha!
Remember when I applied to be a kidney donor for my neighbor Tim? And was turned down – too old! Yesterday was the transplant at Mayo and his wife Ellen was his perfect match – isn’t that almost unbelievable? They will both be at Mayo’s transplant recovery house for awhile but just stop and think – a husband and wife are now part of each other’s body! They have 3 girls and they chose not to use them because of any possible future kidney problems they may have. God has got to be a part of this, right?
I’m heading out to the quilt shop and hopefully hauling some boxes out to the burn pile before the ground gets too muddy. Monday, March 25, is the Quirky Little Quilts quiltalong which I’m going to try to do, too. I’m crazy as is Connie who is making 100 flag pincushions for her cruise students. Here’s our assignment for today: thank someone for something you usually take for granted.
