You Meet the Nicest People at Your LQS


I went shopping for a new quilt project yesterday.  It's for my new Grandbaby to be, so I don't want to disclose too much, but this is what I acquired yesterday.  I was a jolly good time there, with customers sharing and laughing and carrying on.  I was busy on my hands and knees, trying to find some more fat quarters, when I heard a familiar voice.  I got up and looked around, and there was a woman I had hired and trained about . . . well. . . darn, I have to admit it was 30 years ago.  Well, maybe only 27.  What's a year here and there.  After hugs and an exchange of business cards, we decided to have lunch next Thursday to get caught up.

So then, there were these other three ladies who were carrying on about Scaprons.  What?  So I asked to see one.  It is adorable, a little apron that can also be used as a scarf or headpiece, or whatever your imagination inspires in you.  I bought 4 of them from her.


I took this picture of myself, using a mirror, so I look a bit wonky.  You can also see the strain in my eyes.  But I folded the apron and then twisted it into a rose and tied it in my hair.  Cute!  I will wear this!


Then I folded it into a princess crown.



Then, I don't know about you, but these were the perfect remedy for those bad hair days in my teens.  You can also tie one around your neck as a scarf, or wear it as an apron.  Oh, yea, that's what they are actually made for..

Now, back at the farm, I took a walk out in the broccoli field the other day and actually found some that had not been frozen.


This was promptly made into cheddar broccoli soup.  Yum.

Now, even though I feel renewed and am looking forward to my surgery and feeling human again, there has been a bump in the road.  Terry is no longer in my life.  A small matter of personal values became more important to me than to him, and I chose to leave.
In the time we were together, he brought me so much joy in a very difficult time.  We had so much fun together, and he helped me with many many chores around the farm.
I loved him so, and I will be eternally grateful for the special time I spent with that very special man.

It's getting late, and I need to get ready for church.
