Don't be shocked that I'm posting twice in one week!
For once, I have an opportunity to participate in
sponsored by Jenn at A Quarter Inch from the Edge.
Don't you just love the name of her blog?
all my old pictures are in storage a thousand plus miles away,
but I visited a friend in Houston last month and this is what I found.
Back in the late 90's, my daughter's college friend asked her
if I'd make her a quilt. She was told to ask me herself!
Can you imagine that? What was my daugher thinking?
(I don't think she wanted to share me.)
So, she secured my email address,
wrote me a letter introducing herself,
asked for a quilt, and a new friendship was forged.
(I sew for her and her family all the time, now. As a matter of fact,
I slipped a parcel in yesterday's mail to her address.)
At the time, I was entranced with tesselating patterns,
and even back then, I was a scrap quilter.
Guess I've always been a scrap quilter.
I appliqued a kitty laying on one corner, taking a bath.
I used the blanket stitch and this is when I learned it did not quite
hold up to being washed and dried, so now I use it only on wallhangings.
I added a few frolicking mice,
and shipped it off to TX.
It's been well-used and well-loved over the years,
and I was so happy to see it again after all this time.

See you there!
