I remember as a little girl a few really special things, one of those things were... the quilts that my Grandmother and Aunt made together. I would ask them about all the different fabrics that were in quilt and they would tell me stories about each one, such as..."Oh that is the material from our matching dresses", "that is from an old apron of mine" and on and on. It was neat to see that the quilt had quite the history, before it was even made. I only have a couple of the quilts that my Grandmother and Aunt made, but they are proudly displayed in my home. I have sewn since I was about 11 years old but never really thought I could do any other kind of quilts than tied quilts. But thanks to a few talented neighbors and a lot of patience, I can quilt now and love it!
Yesterday was my Demo class, and of course it was great! I love the sweet spirits of each lady, they are becoming dear friends, and that has meant the world to me! They make me feel so special. They brag on my demos, even though they are small and simple things to make. Still they make me feel like a million bucks. It is a HIGH to teach twice a month, I wouldn't mind doing it more often, it is a real treat.
So like the quote below says...I love what I am doing, and I feel blessed, not everyone has that opportunity I realize. But I do hope you are able to do something you love...OFTEN in your life? It makes all the difference in the world.
Good night my friends!
