First of all, I can't believe it's been almost two months since I last posted.  Where the heck has the time gone?!?  I know I've been busy doing stuff, so I will post soon about all the happenings around here.

For this post, though, I wanted to share a quilt with you all.  It really brought back a lot of memories...  I have recently been helping my elder daughter (33) redesign her condo in a sort of beachy/shabby chic vibe.  (One of the many things I've been doing these past two months.  LOL).  It is coming along nicely.  We play ideas off of each other really well.  :o) 

Anyway, I was there today running through final touches, and she mentioned that the quilt I made her when she was 19 would look really nice with the d├ęcor.  Terrible mother that I am, I couldn't for the life of me remember the quilt.  She even told me I had written a really nice poem on the label.  Man, was I ever scratching my head.  I know I've made many, many quilts since I started quilting in 1997, but you would think I would remember the ones I've made for my own children!  Jeez.  What a bad mommy. 

Anyway, I asked her to get it for me, and as soon as she brought it out all the memories came flooding back.  Some were still a bit foggy, but we're talking 14 years ago, right?  Of course, I wanted to take pics.  So I'm sharing them here for posterity.  The pic of the quilt isn't very true to color.  The yellows are much brighter and happier, not so cheddar looking; and that's a pretty minty/sage green as the contrast.  I'm so glad she still loves it all these years later.  :o)

May I never forget...
