just another day

... and then she said, hold on Sam, I think I have to go to the emergency room. My mother, as I was headed out the door this morning to look for some sky fabrics for my growing tiny house village. She's ok, blood pressure back to normal. and I had a great 4 hour visit at the hospital with my sister, my other sister, my aunt, my great niece and my NIL and her darling 6 year old.

And I got my Easter Basket delivered to Shoes that Fit in Claremont, My aunt and I created a wonderful gift for a fifth grade boy -- new breathable leather Adidas, sweat remover socks (six pair) the biggest Reeses Easter egg I've ever seen, A darling Seuss stuffed toy, assorted Easter goodies. And then I thought, why didn't I make him a pillowcase? Which I mentioned to my aunt, in the hospital lobby, and she said I'm sure that would be nice, but don't you think a quilt would be better?

so I hereby commit to 2 quilts for the Christmas Shoes that Fit. They try to supply 200 elementary children with new jackets and Christmas gifts. I think I'll ask for a boy and a girl so I can have the fun of making and buying for a girl for a change.

If you would like to make a pillowcase or a quilt for this program, leave me a note and I'll send you contact info. Good day, Sam
