This time last year, I was sewing this Picnic quilt.
Then we didn't end up using it much.
I don't know what I did wrong.
But, the yellow canvas cloth seams starting pulling apart after just a few washes.
I packed the quilt away.
I finally pulled it back out & sewed patched over the problem spots.
Now we have a family picnic quilt again.
For eating on -
So, I baked lemon muffins this morning.
Want some lemon muffins & some funny stories?
Really. I just found her blog this week
& it is cracking me up & making my mouth drool.
So, you wanna know something a little embarrassing?
The words I embroidered on our quilt are
Eat * Play * Love
I did not mean that as a spoof on Eat, Pray, Love.
I had never heard of the book or movie at the time.
I still haven't seen the movie, even though I love Julia.
(Is that okay to recommend a review for a movie I've never seen?)
Anyway. All I meant was, it's our picnic quilt.
We'll eat on it.
Play on it.
And I'll make out with my husband on it.
But, now after the movie, I kinda wish I had chosen different words...
I guess I'll just have to embrace it for what it is.
|Rain soaked jeans. I'm short. My jeans are always dragging.|
|Those are little choking hazard items on my floor. Yes...|
Embracing the camera
is me committing to get into pictures with my loved ones.
Go read about it here at the Anderson Crew & get in on it yourself.
