Mom reviews Julie's Book

Mom's first glance at Julie's Build A Barn book (Chloe by her side)

She flips through feverishly.

She was excited to see my photo, I still feel so humbled by the experience!

Chloe is always by her side, she wonders what is taking her momma's attention?!

I left my mom after lunch with my copy of the book. She said she was going to take a nap, that did not happen. She started reading and could not stop. Early Friday morning she called to tell me she had read every page, every details, NOT to exclude the credits, ALL of them! I haven't seen her this excited in a long time! She asked me if she could call Julie, I said yes, please do. I needed Julie to experience the enthusiasm in her voice!! I have been summoned to purchase mom a sketch pad that I will get to her in the next day or so.

Thanks Julie for inspiring my mom, she truly GETS IT!!!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Mom turned 83 today, the last couple of years have been really difficult, but here we are, loving life and each other.  We took this selfie at the doctors office on Monday! Neither one of us fixed our hair or make-up?! Does really matter, you can see the love. My sister and I are taking her out to lunch tomorrow, she wants to go to Piccadilly! Sounds good to me!

We were cutting up and disrupting the waiting room!

Quilting mom's quilt that she has been working on, off and on for a year or so, in between hospital visits!

Her quilts are not perfect and we like it that way! She is so proud of her work and the person for which she made this quilt will never notice. It is all about the 'love' it was made with! She is my inspiration!

All the little strips are paper pieced!

My Free Spirit quilt is gifted Jan. 14, 2016

In 2011, I attended AQS show in Paducah. I found the pattern, Borealis, done in yellows, red and browns. I fell in love with it and just had to do one. I found my backing fabric first, then picked the colors for the front from there. I quilted it in 2012 and it has been hanging in the stairwell to my quilting studio since. I loved it hanging there because each day I got to see it and it simply made me smile. My little sister, Tori, turned 50 on January 14, 2016. I struggled with 'what' to get her. Then it hit me, my Free Spirit quilt! I have never 'used' it and I never even considered letting it go. I am so glad that I decided to gift it, my sister's favorite color is purple, so I knew it just had to go to her!!! 

Right away, she said she was going to hang it in her 'art room'. She completely 'got it'! I explained that is was ok to use it, not sure if she has just yet!

Happy Birthday Sissy!
