Sew it is ...!

Due to various personal circumstances in my life, I have not been able to quilt much. It might explain why I have been feeling so much out of sort. Quilting is my sanity ... my creative outlet. And although I have other creative outlets, quilting is my number one.

As I was vacuuming the cat hairs off a bed quilt ....

I realized how much I miss quilting in my life. It's really not the same. I don't feel the same.

I read on blogs about relatives and friends being unable to comprehend a quilter's need to create and would ask, "how many more quilts do you need? Don't you think you have enough ... You can't even use them all ... Oh, and ... You have way too much fabric. You can't possibly use it all in this life time" etc ....

In my mind, does it really matter how many quilts you have? Does it really matter that you have a gazillion more quilt projects you want to make? Who cares? And ... why don't you mind your own bees wax!

All that matters is that you are doing something that you love and that love is expressed via a quilt that will not only keep someone warm but also serve as a reminder that they are loved ... that someone cared enough to make them a quilt.

I have told my little Pumpkin, when I am no longer on this earth, keep the quilts you want and stand on a street corner and give the rest away!

What's your take on the subject? Have you had people express their lack of understanding regarding your hobbies?

Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyber space. Catch you all later!

A chapter in my book of life comes to a close ....

I remember Pumpkin's first day of school. Difficult to comprehend where time has gone. From Kindergarten

To graduating from College ....

I am so proud of this kid ... she has turned into a such a beautiful caring and compassionate person ... I love how she decorated her graduation cap .... truly her calling in life

You see, my little Pumpkin has a passion for the environment ... she cares about this beautiful earth that we all live on and has devoted her studies to Environmental Management. Can anyone guess where she got her inspiration?

I'll give you a hint ... those are truffula trees.

More importantly .....

Congratulations Pumpkin ... I love you so much. I wish you all the best as you continue on your life's journey.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyber space. Oh ... I would encourage you to watch the movie The Lorax. A fun and wonderful movie. Catch you all later!

Happy Mother's Day ....!

Are you enjoying time with loved ones?

I am blessed to still have my mum here with me. As I age, I find it more and more important to spend quality time with her. I love her so much ....

Have you ever noticed that as you get older, your priorities change?

Sunday was spent celebrating the day with mom and close family members. Sadly, my little Pumpkin couldn't make it, as she was in the middle of finals. It's her last year!

Happy Mother's Day Mom, I love you so much!

Wishing you all a wonderful Mother's Day Celebration!
