This is also my 314th post.
I am grateful for the friends I have made through this blog and look forward to continuing to “talk” to each one of you in the coming year.
I will leave you with a picture of my aunt taken this Christmas with her new quilt (my mother on the left, my aunt on the right). She wrote to thank me for the quilt and she mentioned that it was much too nice to use….but she has heard that if you don’t use them, you don’t get anymore! My mom has heard me say that if you don’t use the quilts you get, you won’t get more in the future. Do you suppose she passed on this bit of advise to her sister? LOL
…..they are learning–quilts are made to be used. After all, how can you feel the warmth and love transmitted from the quilt maker if you never wrap yourself in the quilt?
My gratitudes today are:
* Quilters who are willing share their patterns and inspiration with the rest of us.
* Family members who appreciate my work and aren’t afraid to put my creations to use.
