I finally got around to writing notes and signing fabric charms for a group of very earnest fabric lovers and quilters. Through a group on flickr, they've swapped and collected virtually every printed fabric that I've designed over the past seven years. Pretty cool. It is really very flattering and humbling, so it was fun to send them each a tiny something.
I kept almost accidentally writing the notes as thank you's, because that's just how I feel, grateful. And to all of you whether you left a thought, a prayer or a congratulations for me in silence or in the comments of my last post, a very heartfelt THANK YOU. I can't say it enough. So appreciated.
Jeff is helping to train our young Joseph for his newly acquired school sport of wrestling. Yesterday that had Joseph running up and down our backyard hill with a full sized punching bag on his back as well as (umm) having to slap his dad in the face. (I was told that was for courage. But I wasn't allowed to slap him even though I could use a giant heap of courage.) This morning Joseph was asked to recite the definition of courage to his dad at breakfast: "Courage is the ability to face fear, pain, danger or intimidation" he said a little proud of his memory.
Yes, I will take some of that. Without the slap.
